Book Excerpt :

A Man for All Seasons dramatises the conflict between King Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More. It depicts the confrontation between church and state, theology and politics, absolute power and individual freedom. Throughout the play Sir Thomas More's eloquence and endurance, his purity, saintliness and tenacity in the face of ever-growing threats to his beliefs and family, earn him status as one of modern drama's greatest tragic heroes. The play was first staged in 1960 at the Globe Theatre in London and was voted New York's Best Foreign Play in 1962. In 1966 it was made into an Academy Award-winning film by Fred Zinneman starring Paul Scofield."A Man for All Seasons is a stark play, sparse in its narrative, sinewy in its writing, which confirms Mr Bolt as a genuine and solid playwright, a force in our awakening theatre." (Daily Mail)

Book Short Summary:

In this Japanese folklore–inspired YA fantasy for fans of The Hunger Games, a lowly young woman with a monstrous secret competes to become empress. Each generation, a competition is held to find the next empress of Honoku. The rules are simple. Survive the palace’s enchanted seasonal rooms. Conquer Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Marry the prince. All are eligible to compete—all except yōkai, supernatural monsters and spirits whom the human emperor is determined to enslave and destroy. Mari has spent a lifetime training to become empress. Winning should be easy. And it would be, if she weren't hiding a dangerous secret. Mari is a yōkai with the ability to transform into a terrifying monster. If discovered, her life will be forfeit. As she struggles to keep her true identity hidden, Mari’s fate collides with that of Taro, the prince who has no desire to inherit the imperial throne, and Akira, a half-human, half-yōkai outcast. Torn between duty and love, loyalty and betrayal, vengeance and forgiveness, the choices of Mari, Taro, and Akira will decide the fate of Honoku… Winter 2018-2019 Kids’ Indie Next List “Dark, daring, and utterly delicious.”—C.J.

Book Short Summary:

For the first time in forty years, the selected letters of St. Thomas More—son, husband, father, friend, statesman and martyr—are now available in this newly edited volume for the contemporary reader. Moving from the days of his youth to the startling drama of his final years, this collection serves as a “life in letters” and offers the reader fresh insight into More’s education, formation, and character, visible both in season and out of season, in little matters as well as great controversies. The first English writer to use the word “integrity,” More struggled to live as well as he wrote, with personal virtue, solid piety, and a well-formed conscience. These letters reflect all the facets of his humanity and personality, and through them, one may begin to glimpse the living face of this famous “man for all seasons,” as he was known even in his own time. In addition to the letters from Thomas More, the book offers introductory notes on the family members, friends, and other historical figures relevant to his life’s history.

Book Short Summary:

This book examines the life and work of Ajit Singh (1940-2015), a leading radical post-Keynesian applied economist who made major contributions to the policy-oriented study of both developed and developing economies, and was a key figure in the life and evolution of the Cambridge Faculty of Economics. Unorthodox, outspoken, and invariably rigorous, Ajit Singh made highly significant contributions to industrial economics, corporate governance and finance, and stock markets – developing empirically sound refutations of neoclassical tenets. He was much respected for his challenges both to orthodox economics, and to the one-size-fits-all free-market policy prescriptions of the Bretton Woods institutions in relation to late-industrialising developing economies. Throughout his career, Ajit remained an analyst and apostle of State-enabled accelerated industrialisation as the key to transformative development in the post-colonial Global South. The author traces Ajit Singh’s radical perspectives to their roots in the early post-colonial nationalist societal aspirations for self-determination and autonomous and rapid egalitarian development – whether in his native Punjab, India, or the third world – and further explores the nuanced interface between Ajit’s simultaneous affinity, seemingly paradoxical, both with socialism and Sikhism. This intellectual biography will appeal to students and researchers in Development Economics, History of Economic Thought, Development Studies, and Post-Keynesian Economics, as well as to policy makers and development practitioners in the fields of industrialisation, development and finance within the strategic framework of contemporary globalisation.

Book Short Summary:

This book, first published in 1988, reassesses the data on Church - accountant, manager and industrial engineer - and stresses the theoretical impact of his ideas upon contemporary business structures as well as his practical desire to implement concepts to better the working man's day. The past impact of engineers and engineering concepts on accounting and management has previously been overlooked, and this book corrects this. The discussion herein may inspire a much-needed dialogue among engineers, accountants and managers.

Book Short Summary:

The Jake Mosby Story centers around the life of 90-year-old Korean War hero Jake Mosby, his Bride of 65 years Frances, and their children and grandchildren. Jake Mosby's amazing life experiences began early--he became the patriarch of his family at the age of 11 years old; taking over his ailing father's role as provider and caretaker for his mother and sibling and hiring out to a large rice farmer in the community. His story, Jake says, would not be worth writing if he had not met and married the woman he calls his soul mate. Frances and Jake met doing what has meant so much to them both throughout their lives --praising God through song. For many years, each of them belonged to family singing groups. Beyond his close family relationship, Jake served his country with distinction during the Korean war, including one memorable special project under General Omar Bradly - one of America's first black generals - who served in both WWII, and the Korean War and oversaw the transformation of the 82nd Infantry Division into the first American airborne division. Mr. Mosby, who never went beyond third grade in his segregated Prairie County school, is a riveting storyteller with an innate wisdom about life and history. His story is American history, Arkansas history and African American history. Jake Mosby today cares for and continues to dote of his bride of 65 years, who now suffers Alzheimer. He continues to be grateful for their blessings, for his community, his church, and his family of seven children and grandchildren. He is proud that his children today represent moral values, faith, family, and self-responsibility.
