The definitive guide to a Hollywood legend. Few stars are as loved as Audrey Hepburn, today as much as ever. Beautiful, delicate, graceful - but always warm and natural - she stole our hearts. She was also brave, working tirelessly for UNICEF in the face of her own failing health. in this moving and heartwarming biography Alexander Walker traces the extraordinary combination of luck and talent that allowed a fragile little girl,who nearly died in Hitler's occupied Europe, to conquer, in just one year, the New York stage and the Hollywood screen. Walker analyses her ascent to power and world fame and reveals the sadness of her life: two failed marriages, a broken engagement, and the crushing disappointment that occupied her triumph in My Fair Lady. Most importantly of all, this biography reveals what no one has known until now: the truly terrifying family secret that tore Audrey's childhood apart and kept her forever silent about her parents.

A holy place is a place that the followers of a religion consider having a special religious significance. A holy place may be visited by the followers of a certain religion, who find inspiration by visiting it; it may be visited also by other people out of curiosity about that particular religion, or else attracted by its historical, artistic, or scenic value. The religion or philosophy, or better religion-and-philosophy, known as Confucianism is a kind of legendary phoenix; it has been periodically destroyed, just to rise again from its ashes. The last astonishing case has happened in modern times. After one century of destruction, culminating in the Cultural Revolution, Confucianism has been gradually making a comeback. It returned to life as a philosophy during the second half of the last century. In this century, a revival is in process also of the religious face of Confucianism. In any case, Confucianism is both a philosophy and a religion, the separation of the two is a Western concern. We will divide our list of the Confucian holy places in six groups or sections, as follows: 1st Group: The Qufu Area. 2nd Group: Beijing and Other Historic Cities. 3rd Group: Places Related to Confucian Saints. 4th Group: Places Related to Leading Scholars (Sages). 5th Group: Confucian Academies 6th Group: Sacred Mountains.

Business takes place in an increasingly global environment, crossing political and cultural boundaries that challenge corporate values. The central focus of this successful and innovative text lies in how to make and explain 'best choice' judgments when confronting ethical dilemmas in international business situations. The newly-updated version of this groundbreaking textbook continues to provide a topical and relevant analysis of the ethical dimensions of conducting business in a global political economy. From a starting point of applied ethics, the book introduces a common set of normative terms and analytical tools for examining and discussing real case scenarios. Extensive real-world examples, presented in the form of exhibits, cover issues including: foreign production, including sweatshops export of hazardous products testing and pricing of HIV-AIDS drugs advertising tobacco, alcoholic beverages and infant formula deceptive marketing techniques and bribery religious and social discrimination cultural impacts from 'music, movies and malls' environmental issues, including oil spills, rain forest preservation, global warming and genetically modified foods fair trade certification and consumer boycotts oil investments in the Sudan, Burma and Nigeria. To keep pace with the changing landscape of global business, this new edition features: updated exhibits that introduce new issues, including internet censorship and privacy, marketing and obesity, dumping electronic waste in Ghana, the costs of bottled water, and Wal-Mart’s supplier code in China increased coverage of issues arising in emerging markets updated descriptions and assessments of relevant international agreements seventeen new photographs that were chosen to accompany cases designed for classroom discussion "framing questions" to guide discussion of issues in topical chapters three additional figures that help depict the ethical analysis process. The continued globalization of business increases the relevance of this textbook and its unique focus on specifically international ethical challenges faced by business, where governments and civil society groups play an active role. While most business ethics texts continue to focus heavily on ethical theory, this textbook condenses ethical theory into applied decision-making concepts, emphasizing practical applications to real world dilemmas. Anyone with an interest in the ethical implications of international business, or the business implications of corporate responsibility in the global market, will find this book a thought-provoking yet balanced analysis. Clearly written, this has become the textbook of choice in this increasingly important field.
