Joan of Arc by Edward Lucie-Smith (Lume Books) 3.4 Stars (12 Reviews)    Price verified 49 minutes ago

Joan of Arc was one of the greatest figures of the Middle Ages - a woman who has fascinated historians ever since. From her sudden arrival on the pages of history, in the spring of 1429, to her humiliating execution at the stake in Rouen in 1431, Joan of Arc achieved astonishing feats that changed the face of the Kingdom of France. The standard biographies of Joan do not give her a human face: she is a witch, a whore, a saint or a warrior, bound up in myth and legend. Edward Lucie-Smith's aim was 'to listen to all the witnesses - to Joan herself, to those who knew her, to the chroniclers who recorded her career, to those who preserved fragments of information about her in other documents, such as the royal accounts, and to try to construct from their testimonies a convincing portrait'. "I began with no theory, and I end with none," he writes. "But I think that, mirrored in these multiple fragments, one does at last find an extraordinary woman - living, suffering, developing. My ...

Poet Of The Wrong Generation by Lonnie Ostrow (Harmony River Press) 4.7 Stars (155 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

"It's not that I don't love you, and my tears are yet to dry. But you can't go back and forth forever and we've already said goodbye." Through these words, a young poet unearths his musical soul while severing ties with the woman he loves after her stunning betrayal. Unknowingly, in writing this ballad of liberation, he will soon evolve as one of the fastest rising stars on the pop music landscape. The year is 1991; the place, New York City. Here we meet Johnny Elias, a college student from Brooklyn with boundless adoration for two things in life: timeless popular music, and the heart of a sweet, complicated young woman who is clearly out of his league. Megan Price not only is the object of Johnny's affection, but also the only daughter of New York's most powerful PR woman: the indomitable Katherine Price. Projecting that her daughter's boyfriend will never live up to the family standard, Katherine cleverly perpetrates a series of duplicitous schemes to rid Johnny from her ...

Liam's invisible wounds took away his ability to feel the emotions he once had. His untreated condition drives him to suicidal thoughts, uncontrollable anger, and a disconnection from life as a whole.

The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne (Big Cheese Books) 4.2 Stars (2,615 Reviews)    Price verified one day ago

First published in 1850, "The Scarlet Letter" is Nathaniel Hawthorne's masterpiece and one of the greatest American novels. Its themes of sin, guilt, and redemption, woven through a story of adultery in the early days of the Massachusetts Colony, are revealed with remarkable psychological penetration and understanding of the human heart. Hester Prynne is the adulteress, forced by the Puritan community to wear a scarlet letter A on the breast of her gown. Arthur Dimmesdale, the minister and the secret father of her child, Pearl, struggles with the agony of conscience and his own weakness. Roger Chillingworth, Hester's husband, revenges himself on Dimmesdale by calculating assaults on the frail mental state of the conscience-stricken cleric. The result is an American tragedy of stark power and emotional depth that has mesmerized critics and readers for nearly a century and a half. The finest piece of imaginative writing yet put forth in the country. -- Henry James [Nathaniel Hawthorne] ...

The Ambassadors (The Unabridged Edition): Satirical Novel from the famous author of the realism movement, known for The Portrait of a Lady, The Turn ... by Henry James (e-artnow) Price verified one day ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Ambassadors (The Unabridged Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Ambassadors is a novel by Henry James. This dark comedy, seen as one of the masterpieces of James's final period, follows the trip of protagonist Lewis Lambert Strether to Europe in pursuit of Chad Newsome, his widowed fiancée's supposedly wayward son; he is to bring the young man back to the family business, but he encounters unexpected complications. The third-person narrative is told exclusively from Strether's point of view. The theme of liberation from a cramped, almost starved, emotional life into a more generous and gracious existence plays throughout The Ambassadors, yet it is noteworthy that James does not naïvely make of Paris a faultless paradise for culturally stunted Americans. Strether learns about the reverse of the European coin when he sees how desperately Marie fears losing Chad, after all she has done for him. ...

At 26, Tom Mitchell's fake parents are dead, his only friend won't speak to him, and he works the afternoon shift at Rudy's Grocery, where he begrudgingly stocks shelves, gathers carts, and deals with annoying customers.

"Hobbs unearths four lynchings that are critical to the understanding of the origins of civil rights in Florida. The oral histories from the victims' families and those in the communities make this a valuable contribution to African American, Florida, and civil rights history."--Derrick E. White, author of The Challenge of Blackness "A compelling reminder of just how troubling and violent the Sunshine State's racial past has been. A must read."--Irvin D.S. Winsboro, editor of Old South, New South, or Down South?

Investigating this dark period of the state's history and focusing on a rash of anti-black violence that took place during the 1940s, Tameka Hobbs explores the reasons why lynchings continued in Florida when ...

The Complete Harvard Classics and Shelf of Fiction by Charles W. Eliot (knowledge house) 4.0 Stars (34 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

( newly updated TOC ) The Harvard Universal Classics, originally known as Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, is a 51-volume anthology of classic works from world literature, compiled and edited by Harvard University president Charles W. Eliot and first published in 1909. Eliot had stated in speeches that the elements of a liberal education could be obtained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf. (Originally he had said a three-foot shelf.) The publisher P. F. Collier and Son saw an opportunity and challenged Eliot to make good on this statement by selecting an appropriate collection of works, and the Harvard Classics was the result. Eliot worked for one year with William A. Neilson, a professor of English; Eliot determined the works to be included and Neilson selected the specific editions and wrote introductory notes. Each volume had 400-450 pages, and the included texts are "so far as possible, entire works or complete ...

Still Invisible?: Examining America's Black Male Crisis by Elvin Dowling (Inspira Communications) 4.8 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Still Invisible? is more than a narrative on the challenges facing Black males. After all, everyone recognizes there's a problem, and another book simply highlighting those challenges does very little to address the issues at hand, contribute to meaningful and substantive dialogue or offer reasonable solutions on how to help make America better. What makes this book different from anything else you have ever read, however, is that it provides the reader with the tools and resources they need to factually contextualize the issues facing black men today, while not letting anyone off the hook for the problems we need to overcome--be they self-inflicted wounds or perpetrated by the state.

The Story of the Goths by Henry Bradley (Blackmore Dennett) 4.0 Stars (143 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

More than three hundred years before the birth of Christ, a traveller from the Greek colony of Marseilles, named Pytheas, made known to the civilized world the existence of a people called Guttones, who lived near the Frische Haff, in the country since known as East Prussia, and traded in the amber that was gathered on the Baltic shores. For four whole centuries these amber merchants of the Baltic are heard of no more. The elder Pliny, a Roman writer who died in the year 79 after Christ, tells us that in his time they were still dwelling in the same neighbourhood; and a generation later, Tacitus, the greatest of Roman historians, twice mentions their name, though he spells it rather differently as Gotones. In his little book on Germany, he says -- in that brief pointed style of his which it is so difficult to translate into English -- "Beyond the Lygians live the Gotones among whom the power of the kings has already become greater than among the other Germans, though it is not yet too ...

What do Al Campana, Frank Dempsey, Stan Wallace, Don Mullins, Gale Sayers, and Steve Trimble all have in common? They all wore number 40 for the Chicago Bears, even though more than four decades passed between the last time Campana last pulled on his jersey and the number was retired for Sayers in 1994 (along with 51 for Dick Butkus). Since the Chicago Bears first adopted uniform numbers in 1932, the team has handed out only 99 numbers to more than 1,000 players. That's a lot of overlap. It also makes for a lot of good stories. Bears by the Numbers tells those stories for every Bear since '32, from Red Grange to Pernell McPhee. This book lists the players alphabetically and by number; these biographies help trace the history of one of football's oldest and most beloved teams in a new way. For Bears fans, anyone who ever wore the uniform is like family. Bears by the Numbers reintroduces readers to some of their long-lost ancestors, even those they think they already know.

The Skipton Haunting: Curse of the Red Ribbon Witch by Andrew John Bell (Independant Publisher) 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified one day ago

Once connected, never can a bond be broken... Relocating from the quiet suburbs of London to the industrial northern town of Newton Escomb, to a small cul-de-sac there named Skipton Road, was already a challenge in itself for Christopher Joyce and his family -- yet, they had no idea of what malevolent horrors awaited them there. Unbeknown to them, the Joyce's new home bore a terrible and bloody past. It was plagued by wicked entities, twisted deeds, death, and witchcraft. Although, not all was as it seemed. Christopher was a firm sceptic of anything supernatural, as was his wife, Amy, but that would soon change after two demonic beings made their presences and sordid intentions known through many terrifying apparitions and vivid nightmares. Already held in a vulnerable state of mind, Amy gradually succumbed to the powerful influence of these dark spirits, namely a fallen witch who possessed a desperate thirst for vengeance against men -- Sabina. As their connection grew, the bond ...

Slavery in Florida: Territorial Days to Emancipation by Larry Eugene Rivers (University Press of Florida) 5.0 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

This important illustrated social history of slavery tells what life was like for bond servants in Florida from 1821 to 1865, offering new insights from the perspective of both slave and master. Starting with an overview of the institution as it evolved during the Spanish and English periods, Larry E. Rivers looks in detail and in depth at the slave experience, noting the characteristics of slavery in the Middle Florida plantation belt (the more traditional slave-based, cotton-growing economy and society) as distinct from East and West Florida (which maintained some attitudes and traditions of Spain). He examines the slave family, religion, resistance activity, slaves' participation in the Civil War, and their social interactions with whites, Indians, other slaves, and masters. Rivers also provides a dramatic account of the hundreds of armed free blacks and runaways among the Seminole, Creek, and Mikasuki Indians on the peninsula, whose presence created tensions leading to the great ...

The first book devoted to the history of African Americans in south Florida and their pivotal role in the growth and development of Miami, Black Miami in the Twentieth Century traces their triumphs, drudgery, horrors, and courage during the first 100 years of the city's history.

Skytrain: A Transport Revolution by Philip Kaplan (Skyhorse) Price verified one day ago

The legendary Douglas DC-3 airliner was a technological breakthrough that changed the course of both civilian and military aviation. In the 1930s, passenger air travel was expensive, uncomfortable, and frequently unreliable. That began to change with the appearance of the handsome, thoroughly modern DC-3, the twenty-one-passenger twin-engine propeller-driven creation of Donald Douglas and his young California company. The first production models were sold to airlines for $90,000. The price climbed to $115,000 just before the United States entered the Second World War in December 1941. The new plane quickly became a favorite of passengers the world over, and it became the first truly profitable plane for the industry. The threat posed by the coming war made the US Army realize that a military version could handle the vital troop and cargo transport capability soon to be needed. The C-47 Skytrain was born and evolved into specialized versions with many nicknames: Gooney Bird, Dakota, ...

In the ensuing years, he muddled through the ethical swampland of clinical trials, navigated the minefield of experimental treatments, and became a popular blogger and disability advocate. Only while conducting research for this book did Mitch learn the heart-wrenching story about the night his mother was injured.
