Summary

In William Howitt's 'Colonization and Christianity', the author delves into the complex relationships between colonialism and religion. Howitt analyzes the impact of Christianity on colonization efforts and explores the ways in which religion has been used to justify imperialistic endeavors. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book provides valuable insights into the historical intersections of religion and colonial expansion, making it a valuable resource for scholars of both fields. Howitt's thorough research and thoughtful analysis shed light on the multifaceted connections between these two powerful forces in shaping the modern world. William Howitt, a renowned scholar of colonial studies, brings his expertise to bear in 'Colonization and Christianity'. With a background in both history and theology, Howitt is uniquely qualified to tackle the complex subject matter of this book. His nuanced understanding of the complexities of colonization and the role of religion enriches the narrative and offers readers a deeper understanding of the overarching themes. I highly recommend 'Colonization and Christianity' to anyone interested in the intersections of religion, imperialism, and history. Howitt's scholarship is exemplary, and his thorough examination of these issues will undoubtedly provide readers with a deeper understanding of the lasting impacts of colonization and Christianity.

    New York City journalist Al Guart is known for breaking stories for the New York Post, whose editors nominated him for the Pulitzer Prize, and for producing investigative segments for CBS News. But now he's broken a 40-year silence to open up about his spiritual life and the transformational experience of Divine Visitation. Judges from the National Indie Excellence Awards and the International Book Awards declared his book, Beyond the Sphere: Encounters with the Divine, among the best books on spirituality. 
    People have reported encounters with God since the beginning of recorded history. Visitations gave rise to every major religion, influencing the hearts and minds of billions of believers. These powerful events are part of the human record, but it is unclear how accurate they are or how frequently they occur. However, reports from those who claim to have encountered Divinity are fairly consistent: There's something unfathomable out there. 
    Al Guart, a committed agnostic, diminished these accounts as possibly the result of overactive imaginations, mental illness, mythology or drugs - until the first of his unexpected encounters in 1980. He kept silent about his experiences, working to integrate them into daily life while trying to fathom how and why they happened. In this ground-breaking book, Al relives two Divine encounters in stark, journalistic detail. Along the way, he takes a hard look at historical accounts of Divine appearances and challenges the renderings of God left in their wake. He offers the fruits of his spiritual inquiries for consideration but encourages readers to seek their own direct contact with the Creator ... and to settle for nothing less.

    An accessible, clearly-written account of the IRA from 1916 to today. It covers the origins and history of the organisation, its aims, the political and military thinking which has driven its activities, and the major personalities who have shaped the direction of the movement down through the years.
    The relationship with the Irish and British governments is examined, as well as the effects of the major bombing campaigns and the 1981 hunger strikes. It also explains the radical shift in thinking which led to the IRA seeking a political way towards the goal of Irish unity rather than pursuing the entrenched 'Brits Out' policy at the point of a gun.
    The background to the IRA ceasefire, and the many factors which contributed to its ending are looked at, as well as the prospects for a lasting peace in one of the world's most troubled arenas.
    With a new chapter that brings us as far as 2018 this book has everything you need to know about the IRA.

    Kurdische Erinnerungen an den Genozid an den Armeniern stellen die systematische Leugnung durch die türkischen Staatsstrukturen in Frage und eröffnen neue Möglichkeiten der Vergangenheitsbewältigung. Dieses Buch untersucht kurdische Biografien, insbesondere aus Van in der Türkei, und erforscht die Dynamik der miteinander verflochtenen Erinnerungsregime in Bezug auf die politische Gewalt an Armeniern und syrischen Christ*innen der osmanischen kaiserlichen Untertanen und an kurdischen Bürger*innen der Türkei. Diese Lebensgeschichten beleuchten die Komplexität des Erinnerns, einschließlich kollektiver und individueller Erinnerungsvorstellungen über Gewalt, Täterschaft und Opferrolle in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart.

    The Unnamable represents a conversation between Randolph Carter and Joel Manton (alter-ego of Maurice W. Moe) in an old cemetery in Arkham (modeled after the Charter Street Burying Ground in Salem). Manton expresses disapproval of Carter's creation of horror stories. He considers them immature and, furthermore, claims that there is no such thing as "Unnamable". However, he will soon realize his mistake.It is difficult to call The Unnamed a story. It is more like a fictionalized literary essay, a precursor to a future series of essays titled In Defence of Dagon, in which Lovecraft will present a theory of the supernatural story and attempt to prove that horror literature should not be dismissed as exclusively immature, targeted at the masses.

    Great Expectations

    In this unflaggingly suspenseful story of aspirations and moral redemption, humble, orphaned Pip, a ward of his short-tempered older sister and her husband, Joe, is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman. And, indeed, it seems as though that dream is destined to come to pass — because one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of "great expectations." In telling Pip's story, Dickens traces a boy's path from a hardscrabble rural life to the teeming streets of 19th-century London, unfolding a gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, and love and loss. Its compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; Estella, whose beauty is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride. 
    Great Expectations, written in Dickens' final decade of life, received widespread acclaim and worldwide admiration. It was his final great novel, and many critics consider it to be his best. Readers and critics alike commended it for its excellent plot, which rises above the melodrama of some of his earlier works, as well as its three-dimensional, psychologically realistic characters, which are far deeper and more engaging than the one-note caricatures of earlier novels. "In none of his other works," noted the reviewer in the 1861 Atlantic, "does he evince a shrewder insight into real life, and a cheaper perception and knowledge of what is called the world." 
     Swinburne thought the novel was the best in all of English fiction, with flaws "as nearly imperceptible as spots on the sun or shadows on a sunlit sea." Shaw considered it Dickens' "most completely perfect book." This low-cost edition encourages current readers to experience Dickens' timeless masterwork, which is brimming with colorful characters, unexpected narrative twists, and Dickens' vivid depiction of mid-Victorian England.

    The author and radio host shares an inspiring collection of letters to his grandson about family, growing up, and living with disability. 
     
    When his grandson was born, Daniel Gottlieb began writing a series of letters for Sam to read later in life. He planned to cover everything from dealing with your parents and handling bullies to falling in love and coping with death. Ever since a car accident left Daniel quadriplegic, he knew not to take anything for granted. He wrote the letters in case he wasn’t around to see Sam reach adulthood. 
     
    Then, when Sam was only fourteen months old, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disability, a form of autism, and suddenly everything changed. Now the grandfather and grandson were bound by something more: a disability. And Daniel’s special understanding of what that means became invaluable. Letters to Sam is a lovingly written, emotionally gripping book that offers unique—and universal—insights into what it means to be human.
