In the spring of 1957, when he was eighty-one years old, C. G. Jung undertook the telling of his life story. At regular intervals he had conversations with his colleague and friend Aniela Jaffé, and collaborated with her in the preparation of the text based on these talks. On occasion, he was moved to write entire chapters of the book in his own hand, and he continued to work on the final stages of the manuscript until shortly before his death on June 6, 1961.
Adolf Hitler - Harcom
A Mein Kampf (Harcom) Adolf Hitler nemzetiszocialista vezető egyetlen, még az életében kiadott könyve, melyet landsbergi fogsága idején kezdett el írni, miután 1923-ban az ún. sörpuccsban való részvételéért börtönbe zárták. A könyvben áttekintette addigi pályafutását és megfogalmazta világnézetét, valamint politikai programját. A mű a nácizmus ideológiai alapvetése lett. Hitler magát a könyvben nem politikusnak, hanem programadónak (Programmatiker) ábrázolta. Eszerint „a programadó feladata nem az, hogy az ügy teljesíthetőségének különböző fokait megállapítsa, hanem, hogy az ügyet mint olyan megvilágítsa: másként szólva: kevésbé kell törődnie az úttal, mint a céllal.” Továbbá: „[a programadó] jelentősége csaknem mindig csupán a jövőben mutatkozik meg, mivel ő nemritkán az, akit „világidegen” szóval illetnek. Mert ha a politikus művészete valóban megfelel a lehetséges művészetének, a programadó azokhoz tartozik, akikre áll, hogy az isteneknek csak úgy tetszenek, ha a lehetetlent követelik és akarják.” Hitler ezzel az írással egy átfogó elméletet kívánt a nép elé állítani a marxizmus ellenében. Emellett úgy kívánta bemutatni addigi pályáját, mint ami pártja és az egész nép ideális vezetőjévé teszi őt a zsidóság, mint közös ellenség elleni összefogásban. Megerősítette az NSDAP 25 pontos programjának érvényességét. Megállapította, hogy a nemzeti szocializmus egyik elődjének számító Völkisch mozgalom sikertelen maradt és ideje lejárt; ezzel szemben az NSDAP modern, céltudatos gyűjtőmozgalommá vált, amely sikerrel tömörítheti a weimari köztársaság nacionalista és antidemokratikus erőit.

V. Ecsedy Judit - Simon Melinda - Kiadói és nyomdászjelvények Magyarországon - 1488-1800
A kötet a magyarországi nyomdász és kiadói jelvényeket magyar és angol nyelven mutatja be, amelyet 128 tételből álló katalógus egészít ki kétnyelvű elemzésekkel. A nyomdászat elterjedését Európa-szerte hamarosan követte a könyvkiadói és nyomdászjegyek megjelenése. E jelvényeket – a díszítési szándék mellett – a szükség hozta létre, a mesterek megkülönböztetése iránti igény. Bár a nyomtatvány bevezető soraiban vagy a kolofonban olvasható volt a kiadó, a kereskedő vagy a nyomdász neve, de még nem abban a tagolt, jól elkülönülő és figyelemfelkeltő formában, ahogyan később a címlapon meghonosodott.
Stephen R. Covey - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, has been a top-seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its fifteenth year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey exploring the question of whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answering some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.
Walter Isaacson - Steve Jobs
Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted. Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple’s hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.
Sun-Tzu - The Art of War

Alfred Adler - Understanding human nature
What are we? What is our nature and our role? Where are we going and why? It was the psychodynamics behind these central questions that made Understanding Human Nature so important and useful. Originally published in England by Oneworld, and long regarded as a handbook of individual psychology, it introduces the main themes of Alfred Adler's work, including the belief that we are decision-making beings responsible for our own behavior--and capable of changing it. Adler's central aim was to help people live effectively and with a feeling of belonging to the community, and, consequently, Understanding Human Nature's focus is the person in the world, shaping and being shaped by relationships with others. Exploring such themes as the child and society, one's world view, aspects of unreality, character traits, expressions of character, and feelings and emotions, Adler demonstrates his principle's practical application to the conduct of everyday relationships. Adler foresaw that for our survival, we must run the world as a caring, interdependent whole, and his valuable and pertinent insights can help us transform ourselves and life on earth.

Richard Dawkins - The Selfish Gene
The million copy international bestseller, critically acclaimed and translated into over 25 languages. This 30th anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author as well as the original prefaces and foreword, and extracts from early reviews. As relevant and influential today as when it was first published, _The Selfish Gene_ has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought. Professor Dawkins articulates a gene's eye view of evolution - a view giving centre stage to these persistent units of information, and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their replication. This imaginative, powerful, and stylistically brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a wide audience, but galvanized the biology community, generating much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research.
Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion
Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes. He critiques God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. In so doing, he makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just irrational, but potentially deadly. Dawkins has fashioned an impassioned, rigorous rebuttal to religion, to be embraced by anyone who sputters at the inconsistencies and cruelties that riddle the Bible, bristles at the inanity of "intelligent design," or agonizes over fundamentalism in the Middle East—or Middle America.

Lőrinczy György - New York, New York
„In 1968 the photographer György Lőrinczy took advantage of the Hungarian government’s decision to relax its rigorous laws on citizens travelling abroad. The result was his book New York, New York , which projected a rather less jaundiced view of the Big Apple than that of many home-grown photographers. As a foreigner’s vision, and in terms of photographic outlook, Lőrinczy’s perspective clearly has affinities with that of William Klein, but his manic exuberance seems to run on pure energy, without the psychological tensions that underpin Klein’s more realistic and informed vision of the city. It seems unlikely that Lőrinczy saw the work of any of the Japanese photographers of the day, but his book has a similar ‘anything goes’ feeling, akin to the totally spontaneous style of someone like Daido Moriyama, who coincidentally, was photographing in New York around the same time. Lőrinczy’s style is rough, raw and uninhibited, in the best stream-of-consciousness manner. But he has nevertheless thought about New York, New York as a books, not only laying it out in a dinamic cinematic style, but employing such devices as printing one ot two pages on tracing paper, or utilizing extreme grain, blur and even solarization. The later, surprisingly, renders his depiction of the city’s energies more rather hallucinatory feeling that Lőrinczy seems to have experienced on encountering this most vibrant of cities. Lőrinczy clearly had a whale of a time in the headquarters of consumer capitalism, catching up on the 1960s and tasting some of its forbidden fruits, such as rock bands and experimental theatre groups. This excited, carefree, though not naive view of New York makes a refreshing change from the inbred cynicism of the streetwise native”.
Stephen R. Covey - The 8th Habit
In the more than fifteen years since its publication, the classic "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" has become an international phenomenon with over fifteen million copies sold. Tens of millions of people in business, government, schools, and families, and, most important, as individuals have dramatically improved their lives and organisations by applying the principles of Stephen R. Covey's classic book. The world, though, is a vastly changed place. The challenges and complexity we all face in our relationships, families, professional lives, and communities are of an entirely new order of magnitude. Being effective as individuals and organisations is no longer merely an option -- survival in today's world requires it. But in order to thrive, innovate, excel, and lead in what Covey calls the " New Knowledge Worker Age," we must build on and move beyond effectiveness. The call of this new era in human history is for greatness; it's for fulfillment, passionate execution, and significant contribution. Accessing the higher levels of human genius and motivation in today's new reality requires a sea change in thinking: a new mind-set, a new skill-set, a new tool-set -- in short, a whole new habit. The crucial challenge of our world today is this: to find our voice and inspire others to find theirs. It is what Covey calls the "8th Habit." So many people feel frustrated, discouraged, unappreciated, and undervalued -- with little or no sense of voice or unique contribution. "The 8th Habit" is the answer to the soul's yearning for greatness, the organisation's imperative for significance and superior results, and humanity's search for its " voice" .Profound, compelling, and stunningly timely, this groundbreaking new book of next-level thinking gives a clear way to finally tap the limitless value-creation promise of the " Knowledge Worker Age" .

Vadas József - Hungarian Masterpieces
The volume plays tribute to nearly seven hundred years of Hungarian painting. It opens with codeces and altarpieces, many of unknown provenance, so that our knowledge of their makers is scarce - a name on the former predella of the Altar of Garamszentbenedek, or the initials MS on a panel in the Christian Museum of Esztergom. Still, even in the 14th to the 16th centuries, they can tell us much about themselves, first and foremost, that Gothic and Renaissance painting of Hungary, of which very little remains to us from their past, formed a harmonious unity with European art, plyaing a role in its development. The works to follow, whose makers are easier to identify, often prove to have been made by artists from abroad or, if their maker was of Hungarian origin - Ádám Mányoki and Jakab Bogdány among them - it often happened that they would leave Hungary to work in another country. The advent of a typically national art in the 19th century did not break with the history of European painting. Still, it took on an increasingly marked and unique character, so that today it falls into a class of its own. The two hundred years development of modern Hungarian painting is hallmarked by celebrated artists such as Károly Markó, Miklós Barabás, Mihály Munkácsy, Károly Lotz, Tivadar Kosztka Csontváry, József Rippl-Rónai, and more recently, Lajos Vajda and Béla Kondor. Each painting in the volume is presented on two to four pages including a large-size reproduction with typical details, and similar accompanying works. The decsription includes the most important details of the life and work of the artist's oeuvre, as well as in the history of art in general. Still, first and foremost, the volume is meant to please the eye and our sense of the beautiful, with the text supporting the aesthetic content.
