Shadow of the Sun Penguin
'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning
Normal Herald (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Normal Herald The school year opened Sept. 11, with the largest attendance of any fall term in the history of the institution. The usual number of young men are with us in spite of the fact that the new dormitory is not ready for occupancy. The enrollment at this writing is five hundred and seven, with an attendance of two hundred in the Model School. The enlarged attendance is very encouraging in view of our increased rates. There has been an unusual number of changes in the Faculty of the school this year. In addition to the change of Principal, there are six new teachers and a new steward in the school. All the new comers show adaptability, and the work moves harmoniously. After thirteen years of service at Indiana, Dr. Waller has left us. And never did a Principal leave a school more deeply regretted by trustees, teachers, students and townspeople. We hesitate to say even a small part of what we feel toward the great and good Principal whom we have loved and followed. During these thirteen years he has stamped his own noble nature upon the character of thousands of youths who have assembled here, and he won the admiration, gratitude and friendship of all the teachers who ever worked with him. We approve his efficiency as an administrative officer, his character-making power as a teacher, his public spirit as a citizen; but above all we love and venerate him as a man. His kindness of heart, his strict sense of justice, his reserved and gentle speech are to his students an abiding memory. One of last year's class in writing of him says: "When you saw him for the first time, with his quick firm step, his easy poise, and his clean cut features, you recognized a man of refinement, culture and power. Although dignified in bearing, still in his position as head of the school, he was the best friend a student could have. Did any one ever find him too busy or too deeply engaged to answer a question, furnish information, or give advice? Though he put you at ease in his presence under all circumstances, yet there was a firmness and reserve which we respected and feared. To the student his slightest known wish was law. His home and social life was fascinating to the students. Always gentle and courteous, thinking of the enjoyment of others before himself, he sacrificed his own pleasures for the pleasures of his friends. To be with Dr. Waller was an education." Another writes: "We shall miss him in his dear accustomed places, - his prayers in chapel, his Bible classes, his instructive and stimulating talks in prayer-meeting - his pervading presence everywhere."

Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment BERTRAMS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment Isn't One Kind of Enlightenment - It's the Only Kind THE MARK OF A TRUE MASTER is that he can express a subject of the utmost complexity with uncanny simplicity. Jed McKenna is such a master, and spiritual enlightenment is his subject. His first book, Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing, was an instant classic and established him as a spiritual teacher of startling depth and clarity. Now, his second book, Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment, takes us on a fascinating tour of the enlightened state - what it is and what it's not, who's there and who's not, how to get there and how to get somewhere better. Delightful surprises abound, including the dramatic unveiling of perhaps the greatest spiritual masterpiece of all time - long hidden in plain view and well known to all. Whitman, Melville, Thoreau, Mark Twain and U.G. Krishnamurti all appear, and a student from the first book returns to share her Spiritual Autolysis journals. Also surprising are the author's gentle efforts to guide the reader away from enlightenment toward a more desirable and accessible state. Failing to fetch me at first, keep encouraged, Missing me one place, search another, I stop somewhere, waiting for you. - Walt Whitman Jed McKenna's books aren't for everyone. They're for people who are tired of the spiritual merry-go-round and ready to confront the unadorned reality of the awakening process. If you like your teachers with all the spiritual trimmings and trappings, Jed may not be right for you, but when you're ready to jump off the merry-go-round and begin your journey, Jed McKenna is the guy you want to see standing there, waiting for you.
Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton Modern Library Inc
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
"This magnificent edition gives us everything we need to read Milton intelligently and with fresh perception. You could take it to a desert island, or just stay home and further your education in a great writer." -William H. Pritchard, Amherst College "For generations of readers Milton has been the measure of both eloquence and nobility of mind. For the next generation this new Modern Library volume will be the standard: it is meticulously edited, full of tactful annotations that set the stage for his work and his times, and it brings Milton, as a poet and a thinker, vividly alive before us." -Robert Hass "Years ago I began a series of poems about Milton and his daughters. Ever since, I have been combing through Milton's poems and prose for those moments when the poet would turn and speak to the poet in me. It is in the new Kerrigan-Rumrich-Fallon edition that I now find prompt rejoinders to questions, ready clarifications of problems, and a more intimate dimension of that formidable adjective Miltonic." -Richard Howard "A superb edition of the great poet, with modernized spelling, lucid introductions to each work, illuminating footnotes, and fresh prose translations of poems in Latin, Greek, and Italian. This will surely be the edition of choice for teachers, students, and general readers too." -Leo Damrosch, Harvard University "The introductions alone constitute a fine new book on Milton, beautifully written, challenging and balanced, with equal care and insight given to textual, biographical, historical, literary-historical and literary-critical concerns. It is a book to last a lifetime." -James Earl, University of Oregon "In this landmark edition, teachers will discover a powerful ally in bringing the excitement of Milton's poetry and prose to new generations of students. In the clarity of its overall conception, its thoroughness, and its never-faltering attention to literary and historical detail, the Modern Library Milton serves almost as another teacher-patient, thoughtful, endlessly concerned with genuine comprehension." -William C. Dowling, Rutgers University "The editors display a remarkable combination of scholarly rigor and sensitivity to literary values, expressed in prose of exemplary clarity and extraordinary grace; even the notes, concise as well as precise, approach a kind of epigrammatic brilliance. A superb edition." -Edward W. Tayler, Columbia University "The editors succeed gloriously, meeting the needs of the whole spectrum, from general readers to advanced students. A modernized text, one sensitive to Milton's poetic rhythm, illuminates both the author's meaning and artistry. It's a beautiful edition-a home worthy of its subject." -Marina Favila, James Madison University
