Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Occupied by Memory explores the memories of the first Palestinian intifada. Based on extensive interviews with members of the "intifada generation," those who were between 10 and 18 years old when the intifada began in 1987, the book provides a detailed look at the intifada memories of ordinary Palestinians. These personal stories are presented as part of a complex and politically charged discursive field through which young Palestinians are invested with meaning by scholars, politicians, journalists, and other observers. What emerges from their memories is a sense of a generation caught between a past that is simultaneously traumatic, empowering, and exciting—and a future that is perpetually uncertain. In this sense, Collins argues that understanding the stories and the struggles of the intifada generation is a key to understanding the ongoing state of emergency for the Palestinian people. The book will be of interest not only to scholars of the Middle East but also to those interested in nationalism, discourse analysis, social movements, and oral history.

The answer for the bereft musician could well lie within the pages of Lyrically Speaking—a plethora of superbly crafted lyrics from the soul of Kay Bell.” —James Shipstone, RCA Records. BMG Records. BMG Music Publishing Australia/New Zealand. 1977–1997 A song has the indefinable and irresistible power to instantly transport you to another place and time. But before that song can reach its audience, a rare and special partnership must be launched between the words and the music.

Songs have changed lives, saved lives, spawned lifelong love affairs, broken hearts and mended them, brought tears, joy, and laughter to people the world over. Kay Bell is an award-winning lyricist who has received global recognition for both her lyrics and co-written songs. Drawn to human understanding, she hopes her words will support the quest for connection and global peace. Her passion for storytelling (in prose and lyrical form) is the catalyst that propels Kay’s words out in search of realising their potential.

It began at a time in my life when I felt pressed by many things, not the least of which was the desire to express the word of God. I have always been taken captive by Holman Hunt's allegorical painting Light of the World, which represents the figure of Jesus preparing to knock on an overgrown and long-unopened door. This is the door of our own heart, which only we can open to Jesus. This book represents my Bible-based thoughts, beliefs and experiences on the other side of that door with Jesus.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Playful and poetic . . . A foxy, original writer. Memory fuses with wonder, and wonder with worship." —The Wall Street Journal “Marvelously vivid, perfectly tuned. . . Tolstaya is well known in Russia as a brilliant and caustic political critic, but her memories of her Soviet childhood have a tender, personal quality.” —The New York Times Book Review “Grimly hilarious ... Everything in this generous writer’s hands is vivid and alive …Tolstaya is divinely quotable—slangy, indignant, lyrical, crude...It’s all sublime...the swerve and cackle, the breeziness and dark depths...the torrents of language and the offhand perfect touch…She has been compared to Chekhov. Absurd...Tolstaya barrels by him and knocks him in the ditch.” —Joy Williams, Bookforum From one of modern Russia's finest writers, a spellbinding collection of eighteen stories, her first to be translated into English in more than twenty years. Ordinary realities and yearnings to transcend them lead to miraculous other worlds in this dazzling collection of stories. A woman's deceased father appears in her dreams with clues about the afterlife; a Russian professor in a small American town constructs elaborate fantasies during her cigarette break; a man falls in love with a marble statue as his marriage falls apart; a child glimpses heaven through a stained-glass window. With the emotional insight of Chekhov, the surreal satire of Gogol, and a unique blend of humor and poetry all her own, Tolstaya transmutes the quotidian into aetherial alternatives. These tales, about politics, identity, love, and loss, cut to the core of the Russian psyche, even as they lay bare human universals. Tolstaya's characters--seekers all--are daydreaming children, lonely adults, dislocated foreigners in unfamiliar lands. Whether contemplating the strategic complexities of delivering telegrams in Leningrad or the meditative melancholy of holiday aspic, vibrant inner lives and the grim elements of existence are registered in equally sharp detail in a starkly bleak but sympathetic vision of life on earth. A unique collection from one of the first women in years to rank among Russia's most important writers.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "We live in a time of increasing extremism and polarization, where the distinction between fact and opinion has been lost. Instant electronic interaction has replaced thoughtful human interaction. Organizations are bloated by bureaucracy and meaningless measures. Those working for positive change are exhausted, ill and heart-sick as their good work is ignored, underfunded or attacked. We need to acknowledge that we're lost in a world far different than we hoped for. We need new maps to navigate our brave new world. In Leadership and the New Science, Wheatley provided encouraging maps for how to design organizations based on living systems' capacity for creativity, change and adaptation. But in the 20 years since its publication she's seen that in spite of our best efforts the world that's emerged is on a destructive trajectory that won't be reversed by our working harder, finding new methods, or forming better networks.But Wheatley has not written a book to increase our despair. Quite the contrary. In the same vein as her bestselling book, Perseverance, her intention is to inspire us to move forward with greater resolve and energy, using maps that won't mislead us. One kind of map shows us where we are now--she offers a penetrating critique of popular culture. But a second kind of map invites us to choose a new role for ourselves as warriors for the human spirit. This map helps us develop the skills we need most--insight, bravery, decency, compassion-- to discover our right work and create meaningful lives in this dark time.Profoundly reflective yet down-to earth--rooted in the day-to-day experiences we all share--So Far From Home is both affirming and provoking, calling us to reexamine our expectations and redefine our role for the work ahead.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: About the book: DUSK, DAWN AND BEYOND has within its ambit, an astonishing range of topics, very relevant in today's world. From the narrow confines of domesticity it takes the readers to wider spheres of national and international issues. The poems also glide from lyrical effusion to unmapped and astonishing terrains, beyond the boundaries of this planet, imperceptible to the human eye. The book is a captivating read for the variety of very familiar and interesting topics, ranging from the palpitating reality of the horrors of war and terrorism, poverty and its agonising conditions, social divides activated by national, global and domestic injustices like discrimination of race, colour and gender. The poet also denounces male chauvinism, exploitation of women, female infanticide, neglect of daughters- whiplashing at the same time, power - politics, oppressors of the poor, child labour, abuse and rape. She is strongly satirical of modern cityscapes of steel and bricks spiralling environmental pollution and destroying nature. Alongside these maladies gushes out the poetic sympathy for sufferings of the old, such as dementia, pain of loss and loneliness. Apart from her protest against these bitter realities mentioned above, the poet does not ignore the softer vibrations of the human heart. She offers us a number of romantic poems, effusion of the poet's soul, love in all its forms, the dream of universal harmony and global unity. Many poems embrace spirituality. Devotion to God and indignation at him for inflicting human misery are strongly present. Rage, worship and eternal love for the Almighty appear as a delightful mingle. These attitudes automatically bring into focus the mystery of death and also mysticism, in speculations of what lies beyond death.

Yeonmi Park was not dreaming of freedom when she escaped from North Korea. She didn't even know what it meant to be free. All she knew was that she was running for her life, that if she and her family stayed behind they would die - from starvation, or disease, or even execution. This book is the story of Park's struggle to survive in the darkest, most repressive country on earth; her harrowing escape through China's underworld of smugglers and human traffickers; and then her escape from China across the Gobi desert to Mongolia, with only the stars to guide her way, and from there to South Korea and at last to freedom; and finally her emergence as a leading human rights activist - all before her 21st birthday.

This book was released on 2010-02-19 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ursula K. Le Guin's The Dispossessed is of interest to political theorists partly because of its association with anarchism and partly because it is thought to represent a turning point in the history of utopian/dystopian political thought and literature and of science fiction. Published in 1974, it marked a revival of utopianism after decades of dystopian writing. According to this widely accepted view The Dispossessed represents a new kind of literary utopia, which Tom Moylan calls a 'critical utopia.' The present work challenges this reading of The Dispossessed and its place in the histories of utopian/dystopian literature and science fiction. It explores the difference between traditional literary utopia and novels and suggests that The Dispossessed is not a literary utopia but a novel about utopianism in politics. Le Guin's concerns have more to do with those of the novelists of the 19th century writing in the tradition of European Realism than they do with the science fiction or utopian literature. It also claims that her theory of the novel has an affinity with the ancient Greek tragedy. This implies that there is a conservatism in Le Guin's work as a creative writer, or as a novelist, which fits uneasily with her personal commitment to anarchism.
