Women Writers of Yiddish Literature Book Excerpt:

Taking stock of Yiddish literature in 1939, critic Shmuel Niger highlighted the increasing number and importance of women writers. However, awareness of women Yiddish writers diminished over the years. Today, a modest body of novels, short stories, poems and essays by Yiddish women may be found in English translation online and in print, and little in the way of literary history and criticism is available. This collection of critical essays is the first dedicated to the works of Yiddish women writers, introducing them to a new audience of English-speaking scholars and readers.

Praise Worthy Greatness Book Excerpt:

This work "praiseworthy Greatness" exposes you to the secrets of Praiseworthy Greatness. These secrets revealed to you in this discourse are hidden truths about God and you. The hidden truths about why God has always been and remains the greatest are revealed to you as the secrets about why you are less compared to God. But with this discourse, you are challenged to look beyond your present status of being less, in comparison with God's maximal greatness, to begin to aspire and finally to become the greatest like God. Formerly, you were less as every ordinary human person is in comparison with God's maximal greatness, but you become the greatest, like God, after learning and practicing the secrets revealed in this discourse. As a discourse, this work is practically meant to teach you secrets that no one ever told you about: to be the secrets to praiseworthy greatness. You never knew or heard that these are the same principles used by God, not only to be but, to remain the greatest being. You will be proposing a celebration for your glory, after knowing these secrets as they are discussed in relation to the theme "Praiseworthy Greatness: Secrets from God's Maximal Greatness."

Reasonable Faith for a Post Secular Age Book Excerpt:

Our global community desperately needs overt awakening to an age of reason and faith. Reasonable Faith for a Post-Secular Age meets this need by interpreting faith not in terms of belief in propositions but in terms of living surrender to having been seized by agape for every Face, including one's own. Virtually all faith traditions, from Buddhism to Humanism to Wiccan, are rooted in agape and therefore share considerable spiritual and ethical common ground (a truth long veiled). In contrast to ethically feckless secular rationality--over which a devastating, global social Darwinism currently runs roughshod--faith qua living surrender to agape grounds moral realism, awakens us to love for all creatures, and inspires struggles for justice. Inspired by the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas and Christian spirituality, Greenway engages, on the one hand, intellectuals like Stanley Hauerwas, Richard Rorty, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Jeffery Stout, Charles Taylor, and Bernard Williams, and, on the other, contemporary debates over consciousness, free will, evil, and metaethics. He details the character of secular rationality's devastating scission from moral reality and clarifies the promise of understanding faith and spirituality in terms of agape.

Midnight in Chernobyl Book Excerpt:

A New York Times Best Book of the Year A Time Best Book of the Year A Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Book of the Year 2020 Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence Winner From journalist Adam Higginbotham, the New York Times bestselling “account that reads almost like the script for a movie” (The Wall Street Journal)—a powerful investigation into Chernobyl and how propaganda, secrecy, and myth have obscured the true story of one of the history’s worst nuclear disasters. Early in the morning of April 26, 1986, Reactor Number Four of the Chernobyl Atomic Energy Station exploded, triggering one of the twentieth century’s greatest disasters. In the thirty years since then, Chernobyl has become lodged in the collective nightmares of the world: shorthand for the spectral horrors of radiation poisoning, for a dangerous technology slipping its leash, for ecological fragility, and for what can happen when a dishonest and careless state endangers its citizens and the entire world. But the real story of the accident, clouded from the beginning by secrecy, propaganda, and misinformation, has long remained in dispute. Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews conducted over the course of more than ten years, as well as letters, unpublished memoirs, and documents from recently-declassified archives, Adam Higginbotham brings the disaster to life through the eyes of the men and women who witnessed it firsthand. The result is a “riveting, deeply reported reconstruction” (Los Angeles Times) and a definitive account of an event that changed history: a story that is more complex, more human, and more terrifying than the Soviet myth. “The most complete and compelling history yet” (The Christian Science Monitor), Higginbotham’s “superb, enthralling, and necessarily terrifying...extraordinary” (The New York Times) book is an indelible portrait of the lessons learned when mankind seeks to bend the natural world to his will—lessons which, in the face of climate change and other threats, remain not just vital but necessary.

Hidden Scars Book Excerpt:

In the Hidden Scars Collection, the Poet uses Covid19 quarantine moments to recollect his mind on his life’s inspirational philosophy on Love and Loss, Suffering and Success, Politics and Power, Choices and Chances, Pain and Passion,and Life and Death. In March 2020, Governmant of Uganda announced a national Lockdown in response to the global Covid19 Pandemic. The Lockdown was accompanied by a global stay home, stay safe campaign which lead the poet to a life in solitude reading and writing at home. The sad moments of solitude inspired the Writer to draft, write and compile inspirational poems from reflections in his life and pened his first poem on Covid19 which he published on Facebook and eventually in the book Musings During a Time of Pandemic: A World Anthology of Poems on COVID-2019 titled Quarantine in Gulu edited and compiled by Dr. Christopher Okemwa. Finding his poetic voice, the poet penned more than 50 poems in 12 months as he clocked the magical age of 40 in May 2020 by spending most of his troubled unemployed life and love life, midlife crisis reflecting on Love and Loss, and Suffering and Success. Previously in 2016, the Poet had unsuccessfully campaigned for the elective political office of Mayor of Gulu Municipality (now City). The year 2020/2021 was also a national election year, and the poet had to decide either to run again or drop politics. Since he dropped politics and chose a private life to a public life; he also spent most of his private life in solitude reading, researching and writing on the themes like politics and power, Choices and Chances. After surviving contracting Covid19 numerous times after friends within his social connections contracted Covid19 infection; the poet in his writings reflects more on Faith and Fear, and Life and Death. The Poet as a motivational speaker and scholar has always treasured sharing his life’s miseries and opportunities in a way that inspires others who could find healing and meaning from his past experiences. He uses his poetic voice as a mirror of the conscience of those whose life paths are similar to his life’s experiences. Hence, he reflects and writes more on Suffering and Success. The purpose of this poetic compilation is to share his life’s inspirational philosophy by offering a voice to those whose voices are barely heard and to contribute to the already chanting voices on similar themes of life. While these are the poets philosophical life reflections that defined his life story; it is in no way a gospel truth on how to live life but one other tried and tasted alternative philosophy of life that could inspire your life to love, success and power.

British Culture and the First World War Book Excerpt:

The First World War has left its imprint on British society and the popular imagination to an extent almost unparalleled in modern history. Its legacy of mass death, mechanized slaughter, propaganda, and disillusionment swept away long-standing romanticized images of warfare, and continues to haunt the modern consciousness. Focusing on the lives of ordinary Britons, George Robb's engaging new study seeks to comprehend what it meant for an entire society to undergo the tremendous shocks and demands of total war; how it attempted to make sense of the conflict, explain it to others, and deal with the war's legacies. British Culture and the First World War - examines the war's impact on ideologies of race, class and gender, the government's efforts to manage news and to promote patriotism, the role of the arts and sciences, and the commemoration of the war in the decades since - synthesizes much of the best and most recent scholarship on the social and cultural history of the war - reclaims a great deal of neglected or forgotten popular cultural sources such as films, cartoons, juvenile literature and pulp fiction Compact but comprehensive, this accessible and refreshing text is essential reading for anyone interested in British society and culture during the turbulent years of the First World War.

Ypres Book Excerpt:

In 1914, Ypres was a sleepy Belgian city admired for its magnificent Gothic architecture. The arrival of the rival armies in October 1914 transformed it into a place known throughout the world, each of the combatants associating the place with it its own particular palette of values and imagery. It is now at the heart of First World War battlefield tourism, with much of its economy devoted to serving the interests of visitors from across the world. The surrounding countryside is dominated by memorials, cemeteries, and museums, many of which were erected in the 1920s and 1930s, but the number of which are being constantly added to as fascination with the region increases. Mark Connelly and Stefan Goebel explore the ways in which Ypres has been understood and interpreted by Britain and the Commonwealth, Belgium, France, and Germany, including the variants developed by the Nazis, looking at the ways in which different groups have struggled to impose their own narratives on the city and the region around it. They explore the city's growth as a tourist destination and examine the sometimes tricky relationship between local people and battlefield visitors, on the spectrum between respectful pilgrims and tourists seeking shocks and thrills. The result of new and extensive archival research across a number of countries, this new volume in the Great Battles series offers an innovative overview of the development of a critical site of Great War memory.

God Is Plural Book Excerpt:

If the God who spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai 3000 years ago, does not speak to Mr. Mosley in Miami Beach in 2009, we have a theological problem. This book is the result of a deep conviction that to be effective in the 21st century, a preacher must focus one eye on the Bible and the other on the mass media. This collection of 52 sermons invites the reader to awaken to a new level of consciousness about his innate identity as a spiritual being and to affi rm the divinity in others. The author beautifully blends his personal stories with the stories of God and challenges you to look beyond what you see, to experience God with your sixth sense, treat every place as holy ground and to love your neighbor as an extension of your own self. Thought provoking and non traditional, these sermons are relevant beyond the walls of churches and chapels

Stendhal Book Excerpt:

This is a book about the life and work of a singular writer, an author well-known for his biographies and travel writing but most famous for his novels The Red and the Black and The Charterhouse of Parma. As a child, Stendhal witnessed the unfolding of the French Revolution; as a young man, he served Napoleon first as a soldier and then as an administrator; and as a middle-aged man, he made it his task not to pursue his career, but instead to take as much paid leave as possible in order to be free and to be happy—and to write. Stendhal’s works often take the form of conversations with his readers—the “Happy Few” as he called them—about the things that matter most. He once claimed that he spent the majority of his life “carefully considering five or six main ideas.” This book makes clear what those main ideas were, why they mattered to Stendhal, and why they continue to matter to all of us.

R K Narayan s Malgudi Milieu Book Excerpt:

This book projects R.K. Narayan as a writer who, unlike many of his contemporaries was able to address his times and country of birth without giving in to the ruling influences of certain ideologies which made the works of many of his peers monologic, and even pedagogic. It underscores the influence of colonial capitalism in India and the advent of a new and strange class of people who responded to the market economy with gusto. The book also shows how Narayan’s approach is ethical in nature without being harsh on the people he critiques. Through the application of Bakhtin’s theories, Narayan is here positioned as a writer who was deceptively simple, but who can be considered as one of the foremost post-modern writers of India. He wrote at a time when the Gandhian influence had motivated writers so much that they could not envision the other side of the coin, the constant subversion of this ruling influence. Narayan depicted that reality effectively in a grotesque form.
