Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions—sexual, racial, political, artistic. Stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, this "brilliantly and fiercely told" book (The New York Times) depicts men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Overseas Press Club of America's Cornelius Ryan Award • Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Nonfiction A New York Times Book Review Notable Book • Named a Best Book of the Year by New York Magazine and The Progressive "A deeply honest and brave portrait of of an individual sensibility reckoning with her country's violent role in the world." —Hisham Matar, The New York Times Book Review In the wake of the September 11 attacks and the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, Suzy Hansen, who grew up in an insular conservative town in New Jersey, was enjoying early success as a journalist for a high-profile New York newspaper. Increasingly, though, the disconnect between the chaos of world events and the response at home took on pressing urgency for her. Seeking to understand the Muslim world that had been reduced to scaremongering headlines, she moved to Istanbul. Hansen arrived in Istanbul with romantic ideas about a mythical city perched between East and West, and with a naïve sense of the Islamic world beyond. Over the course of her many years of living in Turkey and traveling in Greece, Egypt, Afghanistan, and Iran, she learned a great deal about these countries and their cultures and histories and politics. But the greatest, most unsettling surprise would be what she learned about her own country—and herself, an American abroad in the era of American decline. It would take leaving her home to discover what she came to think of as the two Americas: the country and its people, and the experience of American power around the world. She came to understand that anti-Americanism is not a violent pathology. It is, Hansen writes, “a broken heart . . . A one-hundred-year-old relationship.” Blending memoir, journalism, and history, and deeply attuned to the voices of those she met on her travels, Notes on a Foreign Country is a moving reflection on America’s place in the world. It is a powerful journey of self-discovery and revelation—a profound reckoning with what it means to be American in a moment of grave national and global turmoil.

Book Short Summary:

The act of remembering is a means of bringing the past alive and an imaginative way of dealing with loss. It has been the subject of much recent scholarship and is of particular relevance at a time of widespread transnational migration. This book is a valuable and original contribution to the field of diaspora studies. Based on in-depth oral narratives of forty Vietnamese women, it deals with themes both universal and specific to this diaspora: divergent memories in families, the significance of homeland, the return to Vietnam, cross-cultural relationships, intergenerational tensions, and the issues of silence and unspoken trauma among Vietnamese refugees. It is the first study to apply memory and trauma theories to a substantial base of oral narratives by Vietnamese women in the West. Nguyen argues that understanding of these narratives provides not only an insight into the way Vietnamese women have dealt with loss, but also illuminates the experience of the wider Vietnamese diaspora and other refugees.

Book Short Summary:

Romance and revenge collide in this “uniquely exciting . . . moving and beautiful” novel of expats in post-war Europe (Valerie Hemingway). Harry Hoffman is an expatriate living in Venice. During a time of moral bankruptcy, disillusion, and unrealized love, Harry is a lost soul still running from a sinister past. Then he meets the enigmatic Cleo, who offers him the pleasures of an exquisite and unexpected affair. It’s all a chance for Harry to start over. When this newfound happiness is threatened and their affair is strained by jealousy, Harry can’t help but fall back on what he knows best: vengeance. It takes him from Zurich and the Swiss Alps, to the Cote d’Azur and finally, irresistibly, back to Paris, the city from which he’d once fled. A novel of cruelty and passion, loyalty and courage, and the tragic death of an ideal, In Another Country, and Besides is “a tenderly absurd, heart-breaking . . . [and] truly gripping story” (The St. Louis Post-Dispatch).

Book Short Summary:

In this comprehensive, well-reasoned, critical, richly documented and boldly argued account on the Anglophone/Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia crisis, John Forje, a foremost scholar of identity politics in Cameroon, offers insightful explorations and explanations of histories and cultures of telling truth to power that have come to be associated with the people of the English-speaking region of Cameroon. The book offers realistic perspectives for the reinstitution of justice, equality, and democratic governance in a country of plenty but lavishing in endemic underdevelopment. Forje argues, among other things, that the current Anglophone crisis is the exhibition of one reality: that more than half-a-century after independence and unification, most Cameroonians are grossly disillusioned with their leaders. The country has had only two presidents since independence - Ahmadou Ahidjo and Paul Biya, with the latter occupying the presidency for 40 years since 1982 and counting. If something concrete is not undertaken now, the cleavages of division would widen to a dangerous end. Dark clouds hang over the future of the country. Uncertainty about national unity and stability is hardly a solid foundation for a country aspiring to be an emerging polity by 2035. There is an urgent need for a broader dimension of political dispensation in Cameroon. The book calls for proper soul-searching, critical analysis, and a new, comprehensive and visionary mindset to build a new country out of the ashes of the existing crumbling or failed polity. The need to re-rail Cameroon on the democratic train and on the path of sustainable development cannot be overemphasized.

Book Short Summary:

USSA: The Past is Another Country is about what might have been as seen through the eyes of 17 year old Alex Nurov, son of a prominent Russian father and a beautiful American mother. Growing up on a barrier island near Charleston, S.C., Alex has to deal with his dual ancestry in a world in which Russian snobbery views Americans as lazy and parasitic. Alexs unquestioning view of the world gradually unravels when he discovers something he calls The Book. He soon realizes this is not one of the mysteries he loves to readit is the lunatic ravings of Father Piotr Babulieski who presents an entirely different and dangerous history of the Great Uprising that produced socialist America. And who is this Jesus Christ? A general? USSA: The Past is Another Country takes place in vividly described locales in coastal South Carolina and the mountains of North Carolina. Near Charleston, the Nurov family lives on a barrier island on which Alex and his beautiful, enigmatic mother swim and share long walks. On the islands northern end is a huge dunethe tops of giant oaks rise from it like the green plume from an extinct volcanowhich is 17 year old Alexs secret place where he reads his mysteries and daydreams far from the prying eyes of student block commander Gregorov. Alex attends school in the old city of Charleston which is used by Alexs history teacher Brownsky as the example of pre Great Uprising America in which the decadent rich exploited the workers and slaves whose toil was converted into luxurious homes for a handful of capitalists. Near the Nurovs mountain house Alexs discovers what he calls The Book. Alexs knows he should turn The Book over to his father. Or at least destroy it. Instead this discovery turns Alex into one of the detectives he admires, drawing him into a dangerous quest to prove that The Book is full of liesor that everything he has been taught is a lie. There are three women in Alexs life Alexs American mother envisions a great future for her son and expects him to pursue the destiny she has earned for him through marriage. She is willing to use her beauty and almost mystical charm to make sure her hopes cometo fruition. Alex is infatuated with a fellow student, the athletic and gorgeous Martina Antipova, a true Russian and the epitome of socialist womanhood. Dedicated, unquestioning and intelligent she is certainly the right choice. While Alexs curiosity about The Book grows, he encounters Celeste, a wispy young American woman. Easy and indifferent to the strict morality that governs Martina Antipova, she introduces Alex to the seamy underbelly of old Charleston and more

A young law clerk from England falls in love in 19th-century New York and reinvents himself in Canada. Quiet Isaac Jelfs led many lives: a scapegoated law clerk in England; a soldier in the mad Crimean War; a lawyer on swirling Broadway Avenue in New York. His escape from each was wrapped in deep secrecy. He eventually reached Canada, in 1869, with a new wife and a changed name. In his new home — the remote wilderness of Muskoka — he crafted yet another persona for himself. In Another Country, Another Life, his great-grandson traces that long-hidden journey, exposing Isaac Jelfs’ covered tracks and the reasons for his double life.

Book Short Summary:

From First Communions to CIÉ Mystery Tours – the heartwarming story of award-winning journalist Gene Kerrigan’s childhood in Dublin in the ’50s In his highly addictive style, Gene Kerrigan effortlessly reconstructs the Ireland of the 1950s and early ’60s in which he grew up. An adult world of absolute moral certainties, casual cruelties and mass emigration; for children an age of innocence, but an innocence hemmed in by fear and guilt. In this brilliant and humorous memoir, Kerrigan tells of a world that now seems as distant as another country. Into the details of school, street and family life, of Christmas, First Communion, school violence, CIE Mystery Tours and the arrival of television are woven the political background of the day and recollections of the impact of major figures: Michael O Hehir, Seán Lemass, Eamon ‘Dev’ De Valera, JFK, not to mention Hector Grey, Shane, Davy Crockett and Audie Murphy. It’s a compelling, touching and often very funny account of a happy childhood in a country that was itself far from happy.

Book Short Summary:

In Islam Is a Foreign Country, Zareena Grewal explores some of the most pressing debates about and among American Muslims: what does it mean to be Muslim and American? Who has the authority to speak for Islam and to lead the stunningly diverse population of American Muslims? Do their ties to the larger Muslim world undermine their efforts to make Islam an American religion? Offering rich insights into these questions and more, Grewal follows the journeys of American Muslim youth who travel in global, underground Islamic networks. Devoutly religious and often politically disaffected, these young men and women are in search of a home for themselves and their tradition. Through their stories, Grewal captures the multiple directions of the global flows of people, practices, and ideas that connect U.S. mosques to the Muslim world. By examining the tension between American Muslims’ ambivalence toward the American mainstream and their desire to enter it, Grewal puts contemporary debates about Islam in the context of a long history of American racial and religious exclusions. Probing the competing obligations of American Muslims to the nation and to the umma (the global community of Muslim believers), Islam is a Foreign Country investigates the meaning of American citizenship and the place of Islam in a global age.

Book Short Summary:

For mysterious reasons, a man forsakes his American life and arrives in a strange country called Andorra. He settles into the grand--and only--hotel in its seaside capital, and gradually makes the aquaintance of this tiny city's most prominent residents: the ancient Mrs. Reinhardt, who has a lifetime lease on the penthouse in the hotel; Sophonsobia Quay, the kayaking matriarch of an Andorran dynasty; and the Ricky Dents, an Australian couple who share a first name, a gigantic dog, and a volatile secret. As the stranger reveals himself to his new friends, and becomes entangled in their lives, the mystery of his own origin deepens. What is he hiding, and why? And when a mutilated dead body appears in the harbor, everyone is a suspect, including our narrator. Part thriller, part comedy of manners, part surrealistic dream, Andorra is "a work of remarkable and sustained invention and imagination . . . a nearly perfect book" (Robert Drake, The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Book Short Summary:

Migration is a powerful driver and important consequence of economic, political and social change, and there fore needs to be adequately measured and understood. However, the improvement of statistical systems to measure migration has been a slow process because of weak coordination between migration statistics producers, discrepancies in the applied definitions, and challenges related to data collection. The objective of this handbook is to guide statisticians and other professionals in producing and using data on international migration from administrative sources and household surveys in the CIS region. It describes the key concepts and definitions for the measurement of international migration. It also provides practical information on the sources of administrative data and their use, and highlights the related methodological and organizational challenges.

Book Short Summary:

"There's no way not to suffer. But you try all kinds of ways to keep from drowning in it." The men and women in these eight short fictions grasp this truth on an elemental level, and their stories detail the ingenious and often desperate ways in which they try to keep their head above water. It may be the heroin that a down-and-out jazz pianist uses to face the terror of pouring his life into an inanimate instrument. It may be the brittle piety of a father who can never forgive his son for his illegitimacy. Or it may be the screen of bigotry that a redneck deputy has raised to blunt the awful childhood memory of the day his parents took him to watch a black man being murdered by a gleeful mob. By turns haunting, heartbreaking, and horrifying--and informed throughout by Baldwin's uncanny knowledge of the wounds racism has left in both its victims and its perpetrators--Going to Meet the Man is a major work by one of our most important writers.

Book Short Summary:

A major work of American literature that powerfully portrays the anguish of being Black in a society that at times seems poised on the brink of total racial war. At the height of his theatrical career, the actor Leo Proudhammer is nearly felled by a heart attack. As he hovers between life and death, Baldwin shows the choices that have made him enviably famous and terrifyingly vulnerable. For between Leo's childhood on the streets of Harlem and his arrival into the intoxicating world of the theater lies a wilderness of desire and loss, shame and rage. An adored older brother vanishes into prison. There are love affairs with a white woman and a younger black man, each of whom will make irresistible claims on Leo's loyalty. Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone is overpowering in its vitality and extravagant in the intensity of its feeling.

Book Short Summary:

Stephen Tallman has put together an excellent tome by high-quality emerging scholars that provides cutting edge knowledge on the field of international strategy. The coverage is thorough, including more traditional topics such as the outcomes of internationalization (e.g., performance, innovation, risk reduction) and market entry modes of cross-border M&As and alliances, while also exploring unique and important topics such as investment in global cities and the development of new organizational forms. It is a must read for graduate students and scholars interested in international strategy. Michael A. Hitt, Texas A&M University, US This book comprises eighteen cutting edge chapters by emerging scholars in international strategy, offering a variety of fresh perspectives on critical issues that the field will face in the near future. These young scholars have unique and innovative thoughts about international strategy, which are well ahead of the mainstream of international business academics. Various topics are addressed, including the rise of outsourcing and the global spread of research and development activities; structural innovations by multinational firms, with particular attention to organizing for the efficient transfer of knowledge resources within networks of alliances; and new ways of considering the effects of location, focusing on the relative importance of regional clusters and countries and the impact of geographical and cultural distance on international strategies. Stephen Tallman has geared the book to an academic audience, specifically faculty and graduate students in international business, international management, and global strategy. Sophisticated international business practitioners will also find it an interesting read.

Book Short Summary:

This book, in its second edition, introduces readers to the economics of immigration, which is a booming field within economics. The main themes and objectives of the book are for readers to understand the decision to migrate, the impacts of immigration on markets and government budgets and the consequences of immigration policies in a global context. Our goal is for readers to be able to make informed economic arguments about key issues related to immigration around the world. This book applies economic tools to the topic of immigration to answer questions like whether immigration raises or lowers the standard of living of people in a country. The book examines many other consequences of immigration as well, such as the effect on tax revenues and government expenditures, the effect on how and what firms decide to produce and the effect on income inequality, to name just a few. It also examines questions like what determines whether people choose to move and where they decide to go. It even examines how immigration affects the ethnic diversity of restaurants and financial markets. Readers will learn how to apply economic tools to the topic of immigration. Immigration is frequently in the news as more people move around the world to work, to study and to join family members. The economics of immigration has important policy implications. Immigration policy is controversial in many countries. This book explains why this is so and equips the reader to understand and contribute to policy debates on this important topic.

Book Short Summary:

When you live among slanderers you learn not to think or be like them. Not everyone lives in Equatorial Guinea in a hurry to steal and go live abroad, and that is why those who slander do it with the misuse of their bad imagination. When I write about my country, I do so with the peace of mind that I do not have any secret account or any hidden assets abroad bought with public money, like most of the Equatoguinean sons of the People, with whom I always identify myself. Since always, those inside and those outside, have tried to invent any movie about me, because they do not know me at all and I do not frequent groups of fools and I do not want to meet them either, because I know them all well enough from afar. Not everyone is here to waste time or to talk about things that contribute nothing to the socio-economic, industrial and technological development of our country, my Guinea. Politics is a very convenient excuse for those who do not know how to do anything else but slander, steal and hide, and for those who want to do the same afterwards. That is why in my opinion, the poor (as is the case of most of our population in terms of their purchasing power compared to the cost of living) must always be given the reason even if they do not have it, because everything else is already being taken away from them, which is their real wealth. And I always reiterate that if a government does not make its people rich and prosperous, it is not because it cannot, but because it does not want to or does not know how; and I am not saying it, Confucius is saying it, and he is not wrong. The true wealth of a country is measured in the level of satisfaction of its population and not only in festive moments or in bars. Socioeconomic satisfaction creates political stability, socioeconomic dissatisfaction creates political instability: there has never been any state, country or region that has had political stability with socioeconomic dissatisfaction. As long as we do not understand this, we will continue to jump, dance and sing, and drink beers, but we will not create a different history if we do not do things differently: as a different country. This endeavor to create poverty in Africa by force is the stupidest system of creating problems for oneself, i.e., self-sabotage. It gets murkier when the governed people get used to being spoon fed directly into their mouths, creating a chronic dependency on subsidies and anything of the same nature. But when you assert, condemn, criticize, point out and even ridicule all the efforts made in the country to overcome underdevelopment it is simply because you have no idea what it takes to build a Nation. When I write about my country, Equatorial Guinea, I do so with all the tranquility of someone who knows he owes nothing to anyone, like many in my country. It is very easy to talk for the sake of talking when you do not know how to do anything, and that is what is called ''doing politics'' in Equatorial Guinea. I recommend those who do not know how to do anything and just talk for the sake of talking to first learn something productive for themselves and for the country, and then if they want and have nothing to do, instead of doing nothing better write something, who knows, maybe they will manage to fix their world. That is the difference between wisdom and necessity, between those who think and those who only invent, and that is one of the defects that affect the development of our small country: ''everybody is an expert in everything, but nobody is a specialist in anything, much less in practice.'' Experience makes a person an expert or not in a subject. No one is born knowing everything, just as no one becomes an expert in anything overnight. One of the real problems in developing countries is that everything is left to the last minute, and inexperience is the mother of all failures. This is the first volume of the Handbook for Trade and Entrepreneurship in Equatorial Guinea. Thank you for reading these lines. Javier Clemente Engonga,

A REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK and INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE 2021 NEW AMERICAN VOICES AWARD, LONGLISTED FOR THE 2022 ANDREW CARNEGIE MEDAL, A 2022 DAYTON LITERARY PEACE PRIZE FINALIST, AND A NATIONAL ENDOWMENT OF THE ARTS “BIG READS” SELECTION “A profound, beautiful novel.” —People * “Poignant.” —BuzzFeed * “A breathtaking story of the unimaginable prices paid for a better life.” —Esquire This “heartbreaking portrait of a family dealing with the realities of migration and separation” (Time) is “a sweeping love story and tragic drama [and] an authentic vision of what the American Dream looks like in a nationalistic country” (Elle). I often wonder if we are living the wrong life in the wrong country. Talia is being held at a correctional facility for adolescent girls in the forested mountains of Colombia after committing an impulsive act of violence that may or may not have been warranted. She urgently needs to get out and get back home to Bogotá, where her father and a plane ticket to the United States are waiting for her. If she misses her flight, she might also miss her chance to finally be reunited with her family. How this family came to occupy two different countries, two different worlds, comes into focus like twists of a kaleidoscope. We see Talia’s parents, Mauro and Elena, fall in love in a market stall as teenagers against a backdrop of civil war and social unrest. We see them leave Bogotá with their firstborn, Karina, in pursuit of safety and opportunity in the United States on a temporary visa, and we see the births of two more children, Nando and Talia, on American soil. We witness the decisions and indecisions that lead to Mauro’s deportation and the family’s splintering—the costs they’ve all been living with ever since. Award-winning, internationally acclaimed author Patricia Engel, herself a dual citizen and the daughter of Colombian immigrants, gives voice to all five family members as they navigate the particulars of their respective circumstances. Rich with Bogotá urban life, steeped in Andean myth, and tense with the daily reality of the undocumented in America, Infinite Country “is as much an all-American story as it is a global one” (Booklist, starred review).

Book Short Summary:

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The former attorney general provides a candid account of his historic tenures serving two vastly different presidents, George H.W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. William Barr’s first tenure as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush was largely the result of chance, while his second tenure under President Donald Trump a deliberate and difficult choice. In this candid memoir, Barr takes readers behind the scenes during seminal moments of the 1990s, from the LA riots to Pan Am 103 and Iran Contra. Thirty years later, Barr faced an unrelenting barrage of issues, such as Russiagate, the COVID outbreak, civil unrest, the impeachments, and the 2020 election fallout. One Damn Thing After Another is vivid, forthright, and essential not only to understanding the Bush and Trump legacies, but also how both men viewed power and justice at critical junctures of their presidencies.

Book Short Summary:

This book provides deep insight into the flow of foreign direct investment from Asia to Europe. It assesses the topic of trade and investment from the reverse direction, considering Asian countries as the capital investors in the EU countries. Each chapter analyses either the international trade or investment of one or more Asian countries in correlation with one or more European states. The book analyses a significant number of countries, which are included in various economic associations, such as the Visegrad Group, the Three Seas Initiative, the European Free Trade Association, or are states from the same geopolitical region – for instance, the Iberian Peninsula, Baltic States, and Nordic countries. It examines Indian outward foreign direct investment trends in the UK before and after Brexit, based on select case studies, to emphasize the impact of Brexit, as well as to encourage trade and investment among Asian and European countries before and during COVID-19, to highlight the influence of the pandemic on the target country’s economy. The authors use a variety of analytical methods in the book, such as numerical presentations, econometric analysis, descriptive statistical analysis, an examination of time-series dynamics, the modelling of functions, and semi-structured interviews with company executives. The regional perspectives bring new and useful insights to the topic, and the case study approach allows for a wider exploration of the research questions as well as their theoretical evolution. The book provides a "big picture" for economists, researchers, business analysts, and PhD students of economics, international trade, and business.
