Summary

In 'True Detective Stories from the Archives of the Pinkertons' by Cleveland Moffett, readers are immersed in a collection of thrilling and suspenseful accounts of the work done by the Pinkerton National Detective Agency in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Moffett's writing style is both descriptive and engaging, perfectly capturing the tension and intrigue of each case. This book provides a fascinating look into the world of crime detection during a time of rapid industrialization and social change in America. Cleveland Moffett, a journalist and author with a knack for storytelling, was inspired to compile these true detective stories after working closely with the Pinkertons. His firsthand experience and access to the agency's archives allowed him to create a gripping narrative that sheds light on the challenges and successes of these early detectives. I highly recommend 'True Detective Stories from the Archives of the Pinkertons' to readers who enjoy true crime, historical mysteries, or are simply looking for a riveting collection of detective stories that offer a unique glimpse into the past.

    From one of the lone survivors of the Treblinka concentration camp comes a devastating memoir of the Holocaust in the tradition of Primo Levi’s Survival in Auschwitz.   Why did some live while so many others perished? Tiny children, old men, beautiful girls—in the gas chambers of Treblinka, all were equal. A central cog in the wheel of Adolf Hitler’s Final Solution, the fires of Treblinka were kept burning night and day.   Chil Rajchman was twenty-eight when he arrived at Treblinka in 1942. At the extermination camp, he was forced to work as a “barber,” shaving the heads of victims, and a “dentist,” pulling gold teeth from corpses. But he escaped eleven months later and survived to tell the shocking and heartbreaking tale of his experience—and of those who didn’t make it out alive.   Elie Wiesel calls The Last Jew of Treblinka “an important, heart-rending contribution to our search for truth.” Poignant and powerful, this memoir provides the only survivors’ record of the horrifying Polish extermination camp. Originally written in Yiddish in 1945, without hope or agenda other than to bear witness, Rajchman’s story shows that remembering is sometimes the bravest and most painful act of all.

    For more than 32 years, Stephen and Ondrea Levine have provided emotional and spiritual support to those who face life-threatening illness and their caregivers; deeply affecting hundreds of thousands of people in the process. The Healing I Took Birth For, which was begun after Ondrea’s own medical prognosis that foretold the end of a lifetime of spiritual exploration, is the culmination of her work. Their collaboration, in the service of the dying, especially during the height of the AIDS epidemic, set them both more deeply on the path of compassion—compassion for self, for others, for all.The Healing I Took Birth For is the heartfelt sharing of Ondrea’s life of service and a deeply inspiring example of how one faces illness and great personal difficulties, with a deep spiritual practice and grace. It is the most “intimate collaboration” she and Stephen have worked on and it will inspire readers to find their own way toward living a life of compassion.

  • The Life and Work of Oscar Micheaux - Pioneer Black Author and Filmmaker 1884-1951 - cover

    The Life and Work of Oscar...

    Over a three-decade period that began in 1919, Oscar Micheaux wrote, directed, edited, produced, and distributed over forty films nationally and internationally. These films usually featured all-Black casts. They spanned a silent film period (1919-1930)and a talkie period (sound films) (1931-1948). Given such a background and the period in American history into which he was born, Micheaux's achievements were extraordinary and his legacy is a study of survival, persistence, and bold determination to develop a new era in Black films. The book features a commentary by actor/producer Ossie Davis and has a review copy (on the back cover) by Dr. Maya Angelou and Dr. Henry T. Sampson. This book was edited by the late Dr. Beverly J. Robinson, who was a Professor at the School of Theater, Film, and Television at UCLA for nearly 25 years.
