Summary

In the refrains of Augustus J. C. Hare's 'The Story of My Life, volumes 4-6', the reader is treated to an intricate tapestry of personal narrative that deftly weaves through the fabric of historical and societal contexts. Hare's prose is characterized by its elegant, detailed, and somewhat didactic style, mirroring the Victorian era's literary traditions. With a historian's attention to detail and a storyteller's flair for the dramatic, these volumes traverse a transformative period of history, marked by cultural and technological shifts that are meticulously chronicled through Hare's experiential lens. The journey within these pages is both expansive and introspective, revealing nuanced observations of an evolving world and providing valuable insights into the 19th-century zeitgeist.

Augustus J. C. Hare was a man deeply embedded in the cultural and intellectual currents of his time. His background as an English cleric and raconteur lent him a unique perspective on a rapidly changing society. His astute observations are often shaped by his travels and interactions with contemporaries, effectively capturing the essence of his epoch. It is this personal connection to the world he lived in that lends 'The Story of My Life' its authenticity and power, marking it as a beacon of historical literature that transcends the boundary of mere autobiography.

Recommended for the discerning reader who seeks a window into the past through the eyes of one who lived it, 'The Story of My Life, volumes 4-6' is an essential work for understanding the Victorian ethos and its impacts on our contemporary society. Hare's vivid recounting offers more than mere history; it invites a deeper appreciation for the personal narratives that collectively shape our understanding of cultural identity and legacy. In the hands of history enthusiasts, literary scholars, or those entranced by the power of personal stories, these volumes promise an enriching journey through the rich tapestry of human experience.

    Many books have been written about Second World War special forces operations in Europe and the Middle East. Much less has been said about such operations in South-East Asia  those launched against the Japanese in Sumatra and the Andaman Islands, and the Germans in Goa. These operations, and the exceptional men who took part in them, have been almost forgotten. David Miller, in this gripping account, sets the record straight. His book is based on extensive original research, including long-hidden family documents, revealing much information for the first time and his narrative is fascinating reading for anyone who is interested in special operations and the war against the Axis powers in South-East Asia. His history is the first general account of these operations - it is a landmark in the field.

    The Diamond neighborhood was an all-black enclave in the mostly white town of Norco, Louisiana, aptly named for the New Orleans Refining Co., an industrial processing plant. Margie Eugene Richard was raised in the shadow of a giant chemical plant operated by Shell, and witnessed her neighbors fall ill amid the toxic waste the plant emitted year after year. Her own sister, Naomi, eventually succumbed to a rare lung disease linked to environmental hazards. Determined to see Shell take responsibility for its actions, Margie and her neighbors—largely poor and with few obvious resources—educated themselves not only on the consequences of environmental poison but also on how to fight back. The battle took them from Diamond's four streets all the way to The Hague and beyond. The unexpected results won Margie the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize and helped clean up a community. With riveting narrative drive, Night Fire illustrates how determination and grit can move even the most stubborn of corporate giants.

    This classic memoir of a Scottish woman’s traditional nomadic family offers an intimate glimpse at girlhood in a bygone way of life. A rare firsthand account of Scotland’s indigenous traveler culture, The Yellow on the Broom has earned its place as a modern classic of Scottish literature. Here, Betsy Whyte vividly recounts the story of her childhood in flowing prose reminiscent of oral storytelling. Through the 1920s and 30s, she and her family spent much of the year traveling from town to town, working odd jobs while maintaining their centuries-old language and a culture. Whyte’s people were known by many names—mist people, summer walkers, tinkers, and gypsies. As their way of life became increasingly marginalized, they faced greater hardship, suspicion and prejudice. Together with her second memoir, Red Rowans and Wild Honey, Whyte’s story is a thought-provoking account of human strength, courage, and perseverance.

Sheldrake, a biochemist, has postulated an extraordinary new theory that, if correct, could overturn our fundamental concepts about nature, brain function and consciousness.

    Is Democracy Possible Here? -...

    Ronald Dworkin

    Politics in America are polarized and trivialized, perhaps as never before. In Congress, the media, and academic debate, opponents from right and left, the Red and the Blue, struggle against one another as if politics were contact sports played to the shouts of cheerleaders. 
    The result, Ronald Dworkin writes, is a deeply depressing political culture, as ill equipped for the perennial challenge of achieving social justice as for the emerging threats of terrorism. Can the hope for change be realized? 
    Dworkin, one of the world's leading legal and political philosophers, identifies and defends core principles of personal and political morality that all citizens can share. He shows that recognizing such shared principles can make substantial political argument possible and help replace contempt with mutual respect. Only then can the full promise of democracy be realized in America and elsewhere. 
    Dworkin lays out two core principles that citizens should share: first, that each human life is intrinsically and equally valuable and, second, that each person has an inalienable personal responsibility for identifying and realizing value in his or her own life. He then shows what fidelity to these principles would mean for human rights, the place of religion in public life, economic justice, and the character and value of democracy. Dworkin argues that liberal conclusions flow most naturally from these principles. Properly understood, they collide with the ambitions of religious conservatives, contemporary American tax and social policy, and much of the War on Terror. But his more basic aim is to convince Americans of all political stripes — as well as citizens of other nations with similar cultures — that they can and must defend their own convictions through their own interpretations of these shared values. The book is published by Princeton University Press.
