Summary:

In my book Reborn, I describe events that take me back to relive the occasional traumatic memories I experienced during the war in Vietnam as a frightened child. Plus, the experiences of living in the United States, I often flashed back to these horrible events throughout my daily life; brought into the awareness of the wildest crimes, mainly violence against woman. I witnessed mass murder, countless victims, and all the shocking realities of the entire central highland I knew as a child no longer exists! the whole area literally destroyed; blown completely off the map! I speak out as a woman that for years has suppressed the conflict between the will to deny these tragic events. from silence, I reveal numerous stories about horrible things; things that no one really wants to hear.

Summary:

According to legend, Cumbe ruled the Colombian community of Cumbal during the Spanish invasion. Although there is no documentation of Chief Cumbe's existence, today's Cumbales point to him as their ancestral link to Pasto ancestors. His image reappears often in popular music, theater, community organization, and militant politics as the Cumbales attempt to reinvigorate their indigenous heritage and reclaim the lands this heritage justifies. Joanne Rappaport examines the Cumbales' reappropriation of history and the resulting reinvention of tradition. She explores the ways in which personal memories are interpreted in nonverbal expression, such as ritual and material culture, as well as in oral and written communication. This novel approach to historical consciousness is grounded on a unique combination of historical and ethnographical analysis. Cumbe Reborn makes a significant contribution both to our understanding of ethnic militancy in the Americas and to the broader methodological discussion of non-western historical consciousness under colonial domination. It will attract a wide audience of anthropologists, historians, specialists in Andean ethnohistory and Latin American studies and literature, and folklore specialists interested in subaltern discourse.

Summary:

Directionless yet driven by a fervent desire to make something of himself, Doug "The Thug" Smith took his only marketable job skill—amateur boxing—and followed an unlikely career path to become a hockey enforcer, a.k.a. “goon.” Entrusted with aggressively protecting his teammates from tough guys on the opposing team, he punched, elbowed and cross-checked his way up the ranks of minor league hockey to win a championship ring and the respect of his community. His entertaining underdog story is the subject of the cult-classic motion picture Goon (2011) and its sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017).

Summary:

En 1974, alors qu'il est au pénitencier de Robben Island, Nelson Mandela rédige clandestinement des " souvenirs ". C'est ce texte, sorti en fraude, qu'il retrouvera lors de sa libération en 1990, après plus de vingt-sept ans de détention, et qu'il reprendra pour en faire Un long chemin vers la liberté. Nelson Mandela raconte comment le petit campagnard, né en 1918 au Transkei, dans la famille royale des Thembus, va ouvrir le premier cabinet d'avocats noirs d'Afrique du Sud et devenir un des principaux responsables de l'ANC. Ce récit mêle les souvenirs personnels, voire intimes, aux analyses de la situation en afrique du Sud et aux descriptions des luttes et des combats contre la domination blanche et l'apartheid. L'enfance et les rites d'initiation, la fuite à Johannesburg, le travail dans les mines et les études de droit, le premier mariage et le divorce, puis le second mariage avec Winnie, la découverte du nationalisme africain, les Campagnes de défi, la clandestinité, la lutte armée et la prison. Commencent alors les longues années de travail forcé - treize ans dans une carrière de chaux -, d'attente, mais aussi d'espoir et de luttes. Dans les années 80, le régime d'apartheid bousculé à l'intérieur par la résistance noire, étranglé par les sanctions économiques, n'aura d'autre issue que la négociation. Nelson Mandela, qui est devenu un mythe, sera l'homme clef pour sortir son pays de l'impasse où l'ont enfermé quarante années d'apartheid. Un long chemin vers la liberté est le récit d'une vie exemplaire entièrement consacrée à l'affirmation de la dignité de l'homme. C'est aussi un document exceptionnel sur un des bouleversements majeurs de cette fin de XXe siècle.

Summary:

The two great Yeats Family Sales of 2017 and the legacy of the Yeats family’s 80-year tradition of generosity to Ireland’s great cultural institutions provide the kaleidoscope through which these advanced research essays find their theme. Hannah Sullivan’s brilliant history of Yeats’s versecraft challenges Poundian definitions of Modernism; Denis Donoghue offers unique family memories of 1916 whilst tracing the political significance of the Easter Rising; Anita Feldman addresses Yeats’s responses to the Rising’s appropriation of his symbols and myths, the daring artistry of his ritual drama developed from Noh, his poetry of personal utterance, and his vision of art as a body reborn rather than a treasure preserved amid the testing of the illusions that hold civilizations together in ensuing wars. Warwick Gould looks at Yeats as founding Senator in the new Free State, and his valiant struggle against the literary censorship law of 1929 (with its present-day legacy of Irish anti-blasphemy law still presenting a constitutional challenge). Drawing on Gregory Estate documents, James Pethica looks at the evictions which preceded Yeats’s purchase of Thoor Ballylee in Galway; Lauren Arrington looks back at Yeats, Ezra Pound, and the Ghosts of The Winding Stair (1929) in Rapallo. Having co-edited both versions of A Vision, Catherine Paul offers some profound reflections on ‘Yeats and Belief’. Grevel Lindop provides a pioneering view of Yeats’s impact on English mystical verse and on Charles Williams who, while at Oxford University Press, helped publish the Oxford Book of Modern Verse. Stanley van der Ziel looks at the presence of Shakespeare in Yeats’s Purgatory. William H. O’Donnell examines the vexed textual legacy of his late work, On the Boiler while Gould considers the challenge Yeats’s intentionalism posed for once-fashionable post-structuralist editorial theory. John Kelly recovers a startling autobiographical short story by Maud Gonne. While nine works of current biographical, textual and literary scholarship are reviewed, Maud Gonne is the focus of debate for two reviewers, as are Eva Gore-Booth, Constance and Casimir Markievicz, Rudyard Kipling, David Jones, T. S. Eliot and his presence on the radio.

Summary:

On the magnificent and mysterious, beautiful and terrible world of Kregen, a planet orbiting Antares four-hundred light-years from Earth, much may be achieved and much lost. Far more than merely a strong sword arm is required for victory. Far more than a cunning and devious brain is needed to secure success. Having won his princess, Delia of Delphond, Delia of the Blue Mountains, and having become the Emperor of Vallia with Delia at his side as Empress, Dray Prescot has renounced the crown and throne. Any thoughts of a quiet life are foolish, as he well knows. Among the many problems besetting him, the most important are uniting the lands of Paz and beating off the viciously hostile raiders from over the curve of the sea, the feared and hated Shanks. Scorpio Reborn:Sent by the Star Lords to save a life from a fire, Dray Prescot finds himself utterly helpless in a strange land. Confused and unable to move, he is cared for by Mevancy, a woman with a strange and wonderful secret. But why have the Star Lords left him there? Who is he expected to protect, and how is he supposed to do it? Flying a kite one moment, battling through an inferno the next, Prescot is flung headlong into fresh adventures under the mingled streaming lights of the Suns of Scorpio. Scorpio Assassin:The Star Lords require that a high spirited lady called Kirsty be queen, and have ordered Leone killed so that she cannot return through reincarnation. With the aid of the kregoinya Mevancy nal Chardaz and of the kregoinye Caspar the Peaker, and with the assistance of Trylon Kuong and of Llodi the Voice, Prescot decides to risk all to defy the all-powerful Star Lords... Scorpio Invasion:Dray Prescot must answer to the Star Lords for his disobedience. But the Star Lords argue over him and Dray is dropped accidentally in a walled garden. He is lost. Even the Star Lords don't know where he is. He knows he is on the splendid if horrific planet of Kregen, and in the continent of Loh, but nothing is familiar. He must find his way back to Makilorn, and from there to Tarankar to train an army to repel the Shanks...
