Description : According to scriptural myth the story of the species known as man began with "the man" being expelled from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:23-24). The journey that "the man" embarked upon was physical life, and every being that has ever been born has continued that journey of self-discovery. This is the simple premise upon which After Eden is structured. Although each poem, verse and entry stands as an individual composition, it is when they are read in sequence that we gradually realize that they are actually relating small parts of a larger multi-faceted picture. Almost reluctantly the attention moves from simplicity and innocence into the sensual frailties and harsh realities encountered with life. The result is a very personal approach to life's experiences as related by one who dares to sometimes question the hollow shibboleths that pass as spiritual insight. Life's diversity is celebrated by this life traveler who is a special blend of pilgrim, vagabond, maverick and seeker of rational belief. He discovers that life's intended destination is found in accepting the universal essences that we each embody.

Description : It’s 2008 in Eastern Germany and Alexander, a handsome young man, is being held captive by a sibling duo who take the law into their own hands. The misdirected act of revenge falls apart when the siblings realise they have captured an innocent party. Fighting rising panic, Alexander is at a loss to understand why he has been targeted. Is he perhaps the victim of a set-up? Or, does somebody know about his secret affair with his boss’s wife? As the days pass, Alexander falls seriously ill in the cold and dismal cellar forcing the siblings to free him from this act of vengeance... As Alexander recovers in intensive care, his suspicion that he is deemed responsible for East Germany’s Stasi crimes turns to certainty. He is instructed to visit the cellar alongside an officer in order to give evidence and though he recognises the cellar, he declares that he has never seen it before. Sensitive Alexander tries to bury the demons of his past and focuses on the political unrest in the German Democratic Republic. His refusal to accept the prohibition of the Russian Sputnik magazine and his activist demonstrations should have him imprisoned, but he escapes arrest when the GDR collapses. Adam, a Stasi on the quiet, code-named Eden, is Alexander’s brother; when confronted with his dark past, he is not troubled by regrets. He has nothing but scorn... This page-turning novel is written from the perspective of a personal experience. Eva is able to connect with the characters as, she too, has experienced the suppressive GDR system. After Eden will be suitable for readers of historical fiction and those interested in crime and politics.

Description : Recinos discovered a love for poetry living on the streets after being abandoned by immigrant Latino parents. At age sixteen, a White Presbyterian minister made him a part of his family and guided him back to school. Recinos finished high school, attended undergraduate school in Ohio and later graduate school in New York, where he befriended the Nuyorican poet the late Miguel Pinero who encouraged him to write and read poetry at the Nuyorican poets cafe. After Eden registers life at the edges of American society in ways that are both personal and universal in human experience. In this collection, poems address issues of police brutality, gun violence, immigrants' rights, the blighted urban landscape, death, hunger, religious violence, drug addiction, pluralism, spirituality, family life, political corruption, cultural cruelty, struggles for justice, and the pulse of everyday life in overlooked places. The metaphor in the title is reflected in poems that record the sounds of kindness and cruelty, sorrows and joys, greed and generosity, inequality and powerlessness, good and evil, death and life in the context of struggles to live meaningfully awake--consciously--in society.

Description : This work, intended to commemorate the centenary of the Entente Cordiale in 2004, examines aspects of Anglo-French relations since the late eighteenth century when both Britain and France were pre-eminent great powers at war with one another through to the post-Second World War period when both had become rival second class powers in the face of American and Soviet dominance. The chapters in this book examine and illuminate the nature of the Anglo-French relationship at certain periods during the last two hundred years, both in peacetime and in war and include political, economic, diplomatic, military and strategic considerations and influences. While the impact of Anglo-French relations is centred essentially on the European context, other areas are also considered including the Middle East, Africa and the North Atlantic. The elements of conflict, rivalry and cooperation in Anglo-French relations are also highlighted whether in peace or war. This book was previously published as a special issue of Diplomacy and Statecraft.

Description : This first book in the After Eden series chronicles the rise of nations from the descendants of Cain and the descendants of Seth. When a branch of Cain's line gives rise to the abominable race of Giants, Seth and his followers lay the foundations of the great city of Lhiosquor. With divine help, the people of Lhiosquor manage to prevent the first generation of Giants from subjugating the human race. However, it is not long before decisions made by some of Seth's descendants set in motion a prophesied sequence of catastrophic events. A new generation of Giants arises, threatening to destroy the City of Light from without as the ambition and machinations of the powerful threaten it from within. At this time, God raises up the prophet Enoch. Descended from both the line of Seth and the line of Cain, Enoch presents a choice to the people of Lhiosquor and all other free peoples of the world: acknowledge God and receive His favour, or fall to the cruel dominion of the Giants.

Description : The mission was well-planned and intricately carried out. They were going to assassinate the Emperor of Earth. Everything went according to plan. Except one thing. They failed. Now on the run from the Empire's elite guard, Eden System Commander Yeager finds himself on an escape trajectory with a young ensign in his care. Little does he know that this ensign, Laura Bontein, is the reason why Eden is at war with the Empire. Laura may also be the most powerful being in the galaxy. They escape to Reagul, a planet in its middle ages and somehow responsible for keeping the emperor alive. Here, Laura begins to discover that Reagul has been planning for her arrival for thousands of years. Little by little, Laura begins to suspect that her own people, the lost outpost of the Zeus Colonies, may have ties to Reagul going back to the Roman Empire. As the rumors and legends begin to mirror the actions of Laura and Yeager, she begins to believe her arrival on Reagul may have more than a solitary purpose. It may be her destiny.

Description : A young man uncovers myth, history, and murder while searching for the soul of an unknown and magical place. Andrew Westoll spent a year living the dream of every aspiring primatologist: following wild troops of capuchin monkeys through the remote Central Suriname Nature Reserve, the largest tract of pristine rainforest left on earth. But that was only the beginning. Westoll left the world of science altogether when he departed Suriname six years ago. But the country itself stayed with him and became a strange obsession. Nestled above Brazil and the Upper Amazon Basin, Suriname has a legitimate claim to the title The Last Eden, as ninety percent of this mysterious country is covered in thick, neo-tropical jungle. Westoll read everything he could find about the old Dutch colony -- wild stories about secretive Amazonian shamans, superstitious tribes of ex-African slaves, outlaw Brazilian gold-miners, a ghostly lake with the dead canopy of a drowned rainforest at its surface, and an unsolved political murder mystery that continues to haunt the nation. Five years passed, and Westoll yearned to return to the rainforest. Then the opportunity finally arose. Westoll didn't think twice -- he immediately quit his job, gave away most of his possessions, and kissed the love of his life goodbye. For the next five months, he explored the most surreal country in South America for a glimpse of its quintessential soul. He struggled up dark neo-tropical rivers, immersed himself in Surinamese Maroon culture, and met a cast of characters whose eccentricities perfectly mirrored the strangeness of their land. Westoll maps the natural and human geography of this exotic land while hunting for closure to his strange obsession with it. In the end, he tells a spellbinding story of survival, heartbreak, mystery, and murder.

Description : The Scandinavian [Nordic] countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland experienced the effects of the German invasion in April 1940 in very different ways. Collaboration, resistance, and co-belligerency were only some of the short-term consequences. Each country's historiography has undergone enormous changes in the seventy years since the invasion, and this collection by leading historians examines the immediate effects of Hitler's aggression as well as the long-term legacies for each country's self-image and national identity. The Scandinavian countries' war experience fundamentally changed how each nation functioned in the post-war world by altering political structures, the dynamics of their societies, the inter-relationships between the countries and the popular view of the wartime political and social responses to totalitarian threats. Hitler was no respecter of the rights of the Scandinavian nations but he and his associates dealt surprisingly differently with each of them. In the post-war period, this has caused problems of interpretation for political and cultural historians alike. Drawing on the latest research, this volume will be a welcome addition to the comparative histories of Scandinavia and the Second World War.

Description : For many people throughout the English-speaking world and beyond, Winston Churchill was the greatest statesman of the twentieth century: the saviour of his country and a staunch defender of democracy in the face of totalitarianism. By writing history, as well as by making it, Churchill influenced our whole view of the twentieth century and his role in it. But how does he look now, in a new century, with a different agenda and when few can remember him? This book confronts and addresses this question; partly by including the reminiscences and recollections of four people who still vividly remember Churchill (Tony Benn, Lord Carrington, Lord Deedes and Lady Soames); but primarily by bringing together a group of historians (David Cannadine, Roland Quinault, Paul Addison, Chris Wrigley, Stuart Ball, David Reynolds, John Charmley, David Carlton, John W. Young and Peter Hennessy), who explore the complexities and ambiguities of this extraordinary man.

Description : After Eden is a provocative novel that examines the meaning of home and homelessness among people who see such issues as more than abstractions. In a story populated by Pomo Indians, Euro-American ranchers and vintners, and Mexican American migrant laborers, Valerie Miner deftly juxtaposes differing cultural views of wilderness, trespassing, and home. Her dramatic novel is contemporary, while reflecting on two centuries of change in a seemingly Edenic place. Looking forward to relief from her job as a city planner in Chicago, Emily Adams begins a much-needed vacation at her Northern California cabin. But the sudden death of her life partner forces her to re-examine personal commitments. Caught up in reflection, she comes to understand the intricacies of life in her pastoral retreat--complexities that she had never before considered. In the modern-day Eden of California's coastal range, Emily finds conflict all around her: between loggers and environmentalists, farmworkers and immigration authorities, newcomers establishing a lesbian community and long-time residents clinging to traditional ways. As Emily learns to overcome grief, her story moves from loss to renewal for both the individual and the community. A decidedly feminist view of the New West, After Eden weaves lyrical prose with a different look at "family values" and what it really means to be human.
