Description : Bringing us close to the complex history of the civil rights movement in the American South—the currents that involved thousands of communities and millions of individual lives—this book looks deeply into the experiences of a single Alabama town, Tuskegee, and its surrounding Macon County. It is based on interviews with the people—white and black, liberal and traditional—whose lives were caught up in the movement and altered forever. We see Tuskegee in the early 1940s, seat of America’s most venerable institute of high education for blacks, an important symbol of black progress—yet almost entirely controlled by a white power structure—and we see the emergence of a charismatic leader, Charles G. Gomillion, who defied Tuskegee Institutes’ apolitical traditions and inspired blacks to organize for their right to vote. Thus begins decades of struggle, which Robert J. Norrell re-creates for us through the testimony of the people who lived and shaped this history: the dramatic appearance before a U.S. congressional committee of local civil rights leaders and ordinary farmers bearing witness to the seemingly endless obstructions to block voter registration; the months-long boycott of white Tuskegee merchants that was sparked by the city council’s attempt to exclude black voters by gerrymandering; the fiercely controversial move to integrate the public schools that culminated in Governor George Wallace’s order to state troopers to prevent the opening of Tuskegee High; the anguish that accompanied efforts by blacks to penetrate all-white church congregations. Norrell describes how blacks enters—and won—local elections, including those for mayor and sheriff, and how, with the onset of heightened activism in the late 1960s, Gomillion and other established leaders of the civil rights movement heard angry youthful voices raised against their cautious approach. Reaping the Whirlwind carries us through the early 1970s to a community profoundly changed, proud to have shed its false air of harmony, gradually coming to terms with the disorder and dissension of the preceding years. It is a moving and significant chronicle that documents a critical era in the nation’s history.

Description : '... they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind'This novel follows the struggles of a working class family from the North East of England during the 'roaring twenties' which was shattered by strikes, the Great Depression, the banking collapse and the misery of unemployment. Then came War...Ben Hawthorne is seeking a socialist utopia but struggles with the demon drink. An atheist trying to improve this life, he becomes close friends with a clergyman and together they soar intellectually. With the onset of war, Ben starts working for an engineering firm producing munitions. His horror grows at what Germany is doing to Britain and what Britain is doing in return. As a Socialist, Ben thinks internationally, empathising with those on the continent suffering from the indiscriminate British blanket bombing. He faces a crisis of conscience that threatens to turn his life upside down. This story recalls Pat Barker's Resurrection Trilogy, and the works of other North Eastern writers such as Sid Chaplin's The Thin Seam and Catherine Cookson's The Cinder Path. The mood of Reap the Whirlwind is comparable to the BBC TV series The Village which dramatises early parts of the twentieth century through the eyes of ordinary people. Reap the Whirlwind is a stark reminder of our history and a warning against repeating it.

Description : "Little children, it is the last hour..." So wrote the beloved apostle John. Two thousand years later we are living in the final moments of history. God's people are beginning to lift up their heads, knowing their redemption draws near. Where are we in the prophetic timetable? What momentous event of Bible prophecy will we witness next? Will America be judged before the rapture of the church? Reaping the Whirlwind begins with a primer on the nature of judgment and wrath. Through Jesus' eyes we see God as neither a harmless Teddy bear nor a vengeful tyrant, but as Agape, the Consuming Fire. We can then fearlessly examine the ancient prophesies about America. We can lay aside the popular fables that have lulled us to sleep. By casting aside false comfort, we are free to receive God's comfort, which stirs us up to love and good works. Reaping the Whirlwind reveals the heart of God for His people living in the midst of Babylon America. It is written for the mature Christian, the new believer and the seeking unbeliever. Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church. A.P. Watchman A.P. Watchman has been walking with the Lord for thirty years, loving His church, and ministering in the capacity of prophet, teacher and evangelist. He currently resides in Sacramento, California.

Description : A critical analysis of the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka In the eighties, Sri Lanka, once considered the ‘model’ colony, was torn apart by ethnic strife between the predominantly Buddhist Sinhalas, constituting almost threequarters of the island’s inhabitants, and the numerically fewer Tamils, who were a mix of Hindus, Christians and Muslims. Massacres occurred after the riots of May 1983, and over time about 1,25,000 Tamils entered India as refugees, fleeing from a virtual civil war which still afflicts the north of the island. The author, a renowned Sri Lankan analyst of global ethnic conflict, discusses the historical reasons behind the ethnic violence, especially the growth of the Sinhalas’ feeling of being a beleagured minority despite their numerical strength. Analysing the present conflict, he shows how the language policy of ‘Sinhala Only’, followed by the government in the sixties, supplanted religion as a divisive factor and how rivalry over educational and employment opportunities fuelled the schism. Bringing the story up to the present, de Silva examines the role played by Indian and Tamil Nadu politicians, and President Kumaratunga’s efforts towards a devolution of power to the Tamil Provinces. But given the LTTE’s acceptance of nothing less than Eelam, he sees little hope of an early end to the violence that has racked Sri Lanka for almost two decades now.
