Description : Short Writings from Bulawayo won the Literature in English category at the 2005 Zimbabwe Book Publishers Association awards. It is a book of stories, poems and non-fiction pieces that are evocative of Zimbabwe's second city and its rural surroundings. The collection from 23 contributors tells of many things: of family and friendship, or fear and death, or witches and spirits, of hunger and drought, of dreams and aspirations, of leaving home and leaving Zimbabwe, of queues and loneliness, of football and bicycles and of growing old and of love. A unifying theme of many of the stories and poems is loss - of innocence, of purpose, of love, of culture, of belonging, and of life.
Description : A warm and stimulating book, this text describes the India into which the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the development of his teachings, and then follows the course of Buddhism through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. Far from being a recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his time. If he preached detachment from many of the things by which ordinary men are tied, he did so as a means of enriching life rather than escaping it. These examinations and more make this a book to reveal the social-revolutionary potential of Buddhism.
Description : Cause for jubilation: One of America’s wisest and most necessary voices has distilled what he knows about politics, broadly speaking, into one magnificent volume. Here at last are Henrik Hertzberg’s most significant, hilarious, and devastating dispatches from the American scene he has chronicled for four decades with an uncanny blend of moral seriousness, high spirits, and perfect rhetorical pitch. Politics is at once the story of American life from LBJ to GWB and a testament to the power of the written word in the right hands. In those hands, politics encompasses everyone from Jerry Garcia to Rush Limbaugh, every place from New Hampshire to Nicaragua, and everything from Playboy vs. Penthouse to Bush vs. Gore. Hendrik Hertzberg breaks down American politics into its component parts—campaigns, debates, rhetoric, the media, wars (cultural, countercultural, and real), high crimes and misdemeanors, the right, and more. Each section begins with a new piece of writing framing the subject at hand and contains the choicest, most illuminating pieces from his body of work. Politics is a tour of the defining moments of American life from the mid-’60s till the mid-’00s, a ride though recent American history with one of the most insightful and engaging guides imaginable, a writer who consistently makes us see more clearly and feel more deeply. “Politics is invaluable for all sorts of reasons—chief among them being decades of elegant writing in the service of surgical intelligence.”—Toni Morrison

Description : The three most pervading questions asked by a majority of rational people are: ~~ How did I get here? ~~ Why am I here? ~~ What is my destiny? The author in his quest for answers to these questions has been induced to offer his discoveries in the writing of this book. It is my most sincere wish that perhaps many seeking souls might gain some insight into their search for answers to these all encompassing questions found in their lives, especially during these times of much uncertainty that our world seems to have gone mad. The author is persuaded that he has found answers for profound questions and solace in his daily search of the Holy Scriptures, in addition to the opinions found in the writing of scholars, theologians, philosophers and scientists. ~~ Neighl L Groh During the first forty years of my life, I lived as a nominal Christian despite the fact that I was impressively taught the importance of Christian living by my parents starting at a very early age. My mother commenced teaching my five sisters, my brother and me very early in our lives that we must follow, love and receive the Lord Jesus and accept Him as our personal Savior. In the early 1960's I met a group of Christ loving men that changed my attitude and I developed an unquenchable thirst for a much broader knowledge of God's plan and purpose for my life. Starting at the age of forty and continuing until my present age of eighty-five years, I have made it a practice to read the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice each year.
