The year 2010 marked the 100th anniversary of Mark Twain’s death. In celebration of this important milestone and in honor of the cherished tradition of publishing Mark Twain’s works, UC Press published Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1, the first of a projected three-volume edition of the complete, uncensored autobiography. The book became an immediate bestseller and was hailed as the capstone of the life’s work of America’s favorite author.This Reader’s Edition, a portable paperback in larger type, republishes the text of the hardcover Autobiography in a form that is convenient for the general reader, without the editorial explanatory notes. It includes a brief introduction describing the evolution of Mark Twain’s ideas about writing his autobiography, as well as a chronology of his life, brief family biographies, and an excerpt from the forthcoming Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 2—a controversial but characteristically humorous attack on Christian doctrine.

    Are Africa's world markets really contributing to development across the continent for individuals, nations and regions? This is the key question posed by Margaret Lee in this provocative book, in which she argues that all too often the voices of African traders are obscured amid a blizzard of statistical analysis. However, it is these very voices - from those operating on the ground as formal or informal traders - that must be listened to in order to form a true understanding of the impact trade regimes have on these individuals and their communities.
    Featuring a wealth of oral histories from across sub-Saharan Africa and beyond, including Africans in China, Africa's World Trade offers a unique insight into how the complexity of international trade agreements can shape the everyday lives of ordinary Africans.

    “Apparitions; or, The Mystery of Ghosts, Hobgoblins, and Haunted Houses” is a collection of amusing real-life stories relating to supposed ghost encounters and supernatural experiences. It was written with the aim of dispelling fears and superstition surrounding the subject, which the author attempts to do by examining real accounts and showing them to be "trifles light as air." Contents include: “An Essay on Ghosts and Apparitions”, “The Dominican Friar”, “The Superstitious Couple”, “The Haunted Bed-room”, “The Westminster Scholars”, “The Ideot's Funeral”, “The Ventriloquist”, “The Female Fanatic, and Heavenly Visitor”, The Dead Man and Anatomical Professor”, “The Drunken Bucks and Chimney-Sweep”, etc. Interesting and entertaining, this volume would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition designed for a modern audience. This book was first published in 1815.

    Reaching for the Warrior Within is the author’s personal story recounting a volatile childhood. This led him to a path of addictions, anxiety and overindulgence in alcohol, drugs, cigarettes and destructive relationships. As a survival mechanism he split into many different selves. He credits turning his life around, not by therapy, but by simultaneously paying attention to the messages he has been receiving from his Spirit team in Heaven since birth. He explains how he was able to tell the difference between when his higher self was intervening and ruling the show, and when his lower self was running his life into the gutter. 
    Living several lifetimes in one, he did not let anything stop him from getting his life together, going after what he wanted and achieving it. He describes how he pulled himself up by his bootstraps and obtained every job he wanted without prior experience. This is from work in the entertainment industry with some of Hollywood’s respected talent, to ridding himself of toxic addictions and living a healthier lifestyle clear-minded. 
    Kevin Hunter gains strength, healing and guidance with the help of his Spirit team of guides and angels. They navigate all souls through the treacherous waters in their lives. Living vicariously through this inspiring story will enable you to distinguish when you have been assisted on your own life path. Reaching for the Warrior Within attests that anyone can improve their life if they pay attention to their own inner guidance system and take action. This can be from being a victim of child abuse, or a drug and alcohol user, to going after the jobs and relationships you want. This powerful story is for those seeking motivation to change, alter and empower their life one day at a time.
