Summary

American essayist, lecturer, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement, Ralph Waldo Emerson was a champion of individualism and major critic of the prevailing society of his time. Emerson forwarded his ideology by publishing dozens of essays and giving over 1500 lectures in the United States during his lifetime. Emerson's philosophy did not espouse any specific tenets but rather promoted generally the principles of individuality, freedom, the ability for humankind to realize almost anything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. Gathered together in this volume is a comprehensive selection of his writings which includes the following: "Nature", "The American Scholar", "An Address Delivered Before Divinity College", "The Transcendentalist", "The Lord's Supper", "Essays (First and Second Series)", "Plato", "Napoleon", "English Traits", Selections from "The Conduct of Life", "Solitude and Society", "Farming", "Ezra Ripley", "Emancipation in the British West Indies", "The Fugitive Slave Law", "John Brown", "The Emancipation Proclamation", "Thoreau", "Abraham Lincoln", "Carlyle", and a selection of his poetry.

    A mother's triumphant journey from darkness to light after suffering a traumatic loss. Behind the Face "is a heart-wrenching story that will inspire you as Toranj Irani embarks on her path toward healing. 
    Toranj allows the reader insight into her journey from wondering why her life included so much suffering and why she was being punished to the realization that not everything is happening to you and into the knowing that things are always happening for you. With this new awareness, she was able to move from bitter to joyful. Toranj then went on to develop a connection with her daughter-although no longer in physical form but is very much a part of her everyday life which includes 'out of the blue' magical surprises. 
    This is a powerful story of her awakening and transformation."

    The 20th anniversary edition of the study that first revealed De Soto’s path across the 16th century American South includes a forward by Robbie Ethridge Between 1539 and 1542, the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto led a small army on an expedition of almost four thousand miles across Southeastern America. De Soto’s path had been one of history’s most intriguing mysteries until the publication of Knights of Spain, Warriors of the Sun. Using a new route reconstruction, anthropologist Charles Hudson maps the story of the de Soto expedition, tying the route to a number of specific archaeological sites. De Soto’s journey cut a bloody and indelible swath across both the landscape and native cultures in a quest for gold and glory. The desperate Spanish army followed the sunset from Florida to Texas before abandoning its mission. De Soto’s one triumph was that he was the first European to explore the vast region that would be the American South. But in 1542, he died a broken man on the banks of the Mississippi River. In this classic text, Hudson masterfully chronicles both De Soto’s expedition and the native societies he visited. The narrative unfolds against the exotic backdrop of a now extinct social and geographic landscape. A blending of archaeology, history, and historical geography, this is a monumental study of the sixteenth-century Southeast.

    The honeymoon – no other holiday inspires so much anticipation of blissful happiness, nor such potential for catastrophic disappointment. Using extracts from fiction and from real-life diaries and letters, Honeymoons: through writers' eyes takes you on a rollercoaster of an emotional journey into the heart of human longing, to examine what it is we are seeking, what we expect, when we embark on life together. There are real journeys to Pisa and Rome, through Switzerland and India and to the moors of Yorkshire. We hear about the consummations of royal weddings; and the dire consequences of marriages of convenience and those entered into with calculation. The road is littered with pleasures, great and small, not to mention surprises, disappointments, cads and one or two corpses.

    On Wednesday 15 April 1998, Detective Sergeant Gurpal Singh Virdi was arrested and accused of sending racist hate mail to himself and ethnic minority colleagues. Dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service, his reputation in ruins, Virdi took his case to an employment tribunal which judged that he had been a victim of racial discrimination. Completely vindicated, Virdi was reinstated to the job he loved – but his travails were far from over. Constantly overlooked for promotion, he realised that by challenging the Met he had effectively ended his career.
    Following his retirement from the force and keen to serve his local community, Virdi decided to run for election as a Labour councillor – but, prior to the election, he was arrested a second time. The allegations levelled against him were horrifying: he stood accused of sexually assaulting an underage prisoner nearly thirty years earlier. Yet when the case went to trial, a jury took less than fifty minutes to clear Virdi of all charges, with the judge noting the likelihood of a conspiracy behind the case. But the damage had been done.
    Behind the Blue Line is Virdi's deeply shocking account of how one of Britain's biggest institutions brought the apparatus of the state to bear in a campaign to destroy the life of one of its own officers.

    Hedge fund manager and former colleague Doug Kass describes Leon Cooperman as an “estimable humanitarian” who’s been “seasoned with a pinch of Horatio Alger and a heaping spoonful of justified self-confidence.” Indeed, this is certainly the flavor that comes through in Mr. Cooperman’s timely memoir, From the Bronx to Wall Street: My Fifty Years in Finance and Philanthropy. In this era of Warren Buffett’s “Giving Pledge,” Mr. Cooperman and his wife, Toby, have become two of the country’s most prominent supporters of hospitals, scholarships, colleges, libraries, and other vital programs and institutions. In these pages, Mr. Cooperman not only recounts fascinating details from his long career at Goldman Sachs and his hedge fund, Omega Advisors, but also speaks movingly, and with great insight, about the meaning of wealth and the moral responsibilities that come with it.
