Description : Sir Paulias Matane CMG, OBE is without doubt one of Papua New Guinea's finest sons. He is a member of a pioneering generation of Papua New Guineans, born and brought up in communities which had undergone remarkably little change after almost 50 years of German and Australian rule. The son of a pastor, Ilias Matane, the 15 year old Paulias was among the first children to attend a Methodist Mission school established in Viviran after World War II. This education set him on the path to national and international success. Leader, writer, philosopher, diplomat, businessman and philanthropist, Sir Paulias Matane will find an important place in the annals of Papua New Guinean history. In To Serve with Love he describes his life and work through the years of change prior to and after independence.
Description : This schoolroom drama that inspired the classic Sydney Poitier film is “a microcosm of the racial issues . . . A dramatic picture of discrimination” (Kirkus Reviews). With opportunities for black men limited in post–World War II London, Rick Braithwaite, a former Royal Air Force pilot and Cambridge-educated engineer, accepts a teaching position that puts him in charge of a class of angry, unmotivated, bigoted white teenagers whom the system has mostly abandoned. When his efforts to reach these troubled students are met with threats, suspicion, and derision, Braithwaite takes a radical new approach. He will treat his students as people poised to enter the adult world. He will teach them to respect themselves and to call him “Sir.” He will open up vistas before them that they never knew existed. And over the course of a remarkable year, he will touch the lives of his students in extraordinary ways, even as they in turn, unexpectedly and profoundly, touch his. Based on actual events in the author’s life, To Sir, With Love is a powerfully moving story that celebrates courage, commitment, and vision, and is the inspiration for the classic film starring Sidney Poitier.
