Book Short Summary:

Discover revealing analysis of the prophecies in the scriptures and their relation to God’s covenant people in the last days. The latter-days are an exciting and confusing time to live in. The end-time scenario, as predicted by prophets of God in the scriptures, is much like a puzzle we must piece together. This puzzle often remains unfinished because of two reasons: 1) the precepts of men, and 2) a proud unwillingness to accept what the Lord is truly saying. The Lord has informed us that the judgments of the last days will begin upon His own covenant people. This book presents the doctrinal context and scriptural analysis related to the “why” behind that declaration—the apostasy of God’s people. Those who enjoy searching the deep things of God, the teachings of Joseph Smith, and scriptural prophecies concerning the last days will love this book!

Book Short Summary:

The rise of nationalist, racist and anti-feminist ideologies is one of the most frightening repercussions of the collapse of socialism. Using psychoanalytic theories of fantasy to investigate why such extremist ideologies have taken hold, Renata Salecl argues that the major social and political changes in post-communist Eastern Europe require a radical re-evaluation of notions of liberal theories of democracy. In doing so she offers a new approach to human rights and feminism grounded in her own active partipation in the struggles, first against communism and now against nationalism and anti-feminism.

Book Short Summary:

The Story of an African Farm (1883) marks an early appearance in fiction of Victorian society's emerging New Woman. The novel follows the spiritual quests of Lyndall and Waldo, who each struggle against social constraints in their search for happiness and truth: Lyndall, against society's expectations of women, and Waldo against stifling class conventions. Written from the margins of the British empire, the novel addresses the conflicts of race, class, and gender that shaped the lives of European settlers in Southern Africa before the Boer Wars. This Broadview edition includes appendices that link the novel to histories of empire and colonialism, the emergence of the New Woman, and the conflicts between science and religion in the Victorian period. Contemporary reviews are also included.

Book Short Summary:

Punk rock and hip-hop. Disco and salsa. The loft jazz scene and the downtown composers known as Minimalists. In the mid-1970s, New York City was a laboratory where all the major styles of modern music were reinvented—all at once, from one block to the next, by musicians who knew, admired, and borrowed from one another. Crime was everywhere, the government was broke, and the city's infrastructure was collapsing. But rent was cheap, and the possibilities for musical exploration were limitless. Love Goes to Buildings on Fire is the first book to tell the full story of the era's music scenes and the phenomenal and surprising ways they intersected. From New Year's Day 1973 to New Year's Eve 1977, the book moves panoramically from post-Dylan Greenwich Village, to the arson-scarred South Bronx barrios where salsa and hip-hop were created, to the Lower Manhattan lofts where jazz and classical music were reimagined, to ramshackle clubs like CBGBs and The Gallery, where rock and dance music were hot-wired for a new generation. As they remade the music, the musicians at the center of the book invented themselves: Willie Colón and the Fania All-Stars renting Yankee Stadium to take salsa to the masses, New Jersey locals Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith claiming the jungleland of Manhattan as their own, Grandmaster Flash transforming the turntable into a musical instrument, David Byrne and Talking Heads proving that rock music "ain't no foolin' around." Will Hermes was there—venturing from his native Queens to the small dark rooms where the revolution was taking place—and in Love Goes to Buildings on Fire he captures the creativity, drive, and full-out lust for life of the great New York musicians of those years, who knew that the music they were making would change the world.

Book Short Summary:

Patrick Golden is a student at Berkeley during the turbulent and vibrant late 1960s. The product of working-class Jewish and Irish-Catholic parents, he takes a huge step out of his social comfort zone when he makes the move to the storied walls of the Ivy League. Soon hes surrounded by old-moneyed aristocrats as he joins his affluent and socially well-connected college roommate, Charles Comstock, at Harvard in the summer of 1968. At Harvard, Patrick meets Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Bostons oldest, wealthiest, and stodgiest families. Despite her bigoted fathers virulent objections and threats, their romance bloomsuntil it is torn apart by the dark secret Morgan must keep from Patrick. To protect him, she disappears, leaving his heart in tatters without an explanation or even a good-bye. Forty-one years later, Patrick finds himself back in Boston on sad businessthe funeral of his old college roommate, Charles. In a twist he could never have predicted, he reconnects with his long-lost love. After decades of doubt and confusion, hes about to learn her secretand his life will be dramatically altered by her confession. Vividly describing Harvard, Berkeley, and San Francisco as they were in the late 1960s, No Fortunate Son recreates the sights, sounds, mood, and culture that defined this colorfully tumultuous and politically pivotal era. Barbara Keer, Editor of Chicago Splash Magazine, Splash Magazines Worldwide It isnt often that I find a book I cant put down and feel a loss when I finish because the characters have become my friends. No Fortunate Son is that kind of book.I found the book interesting in several ways: as a first novel, as an example both of a self published book and re-careering. Patrick Golden, the protaganist, has a very different story. Glancing by chance at the obituary section which until then had been concealed from view, he gasped when a photograph of his friend, Charles Comstock, leaped at him from the page. Patrick lives near San Francisco and Charles died in Boston. And so begins a tale that is filled with intrigue as it weaves its way through the period of the Viet Nam War, one shocking event following the next and the young people trying to find their lives in the midst of it all. The stories of that time come vividly to life.

Book Short Summary:

As interest in 19th-century English literature by women has been reinvigorated by a resurgence in popularity of the works of Jane Austen, readers are rediscovering a writer whose fiction, once widely beloved, fell by the wayside. British novelist ELIZABETH CLEGHORN GASKELL (1810-1865)-whose books were sometimes initially credited to, simply, "Mrs. Gaskell"-is now recognized as having created some of the most complex and progressive depictions of women in the literature of the age. Gaskell's one work of nonfiction is this 1857 biography of her close friend, novelist Charlotte Bront. At once a triumph of the biographical form and a charming celebration of the writer by someone who knew her well, this has been hailed as a remarkably insightful and highly readable life of Bront, one that makes up for its lack of objectivity with its warmth, admiration, and respect. It offers a significant view of one woman writer's perspective on another's work at a time when women writers were afforded little respect at all.

Book Short Summary:

The author takes a closer look at the tragedy of the book of Job and finds God's fingerprint of grace on every single page. He delves into the culture of Job's time to make sense of the mannerisms of the characters involved in this extreme story of loss and God's goodness. Many truths that are overlooked and hidden are brought into plain sight as we discover the frailty, humanity and flaws of Job. The author takes a look at centuries old assumptions and applies even older truths of the character of God which tells a different tale than we are used to. This book is refreshing, funny, painfully honest and a very easy read. If you are looking for answers to your "Why's" this book is a must have for you.

Book Short Summary:

Jesus Christ is arguably the most famous man who ever lived. His image adorns countless churches, icons, and paintings. He is the subject of millions of statues, sculptures, devotional objects and works of art. Everyone can conjure an image of Jesus: usually as a handsome, white man with flowing locks and pristine linen robes. But what did Jesus really look like? Is our popular image of Jesus overly westernized and untrue to historical reality? This question continues to fascinate. Leading Christian Origins scholar Joan E. Taylor surveys the historical evidence, and the prevalent image of Jesus in art and culture, to suggest an entirely different vision of this most famous of men. He may even have had short hair.

A USA Today Hottest Book of the Summer for 2019! A Best Nonfiction Book for 2019 in Woman's Day! One of Hello Giggles's "Most Anticipated Books of 2019 to Add to Your Reading List"! “Just when I thought I knew everything about Tan, he hits me with this. His story is so heartwarming, and wickedly funny.” —Antoni Porowski In this heartfelt, funny, and touching memoir, one of the stars of Netflix’s Emmy Award-winning smash-hit Queer Eye reveals how an Englishman raised in a traditionally religious home became a fashion icon—and the first openly gay, South Asian man on television—simply by being Naturally Tan. In this heartfelt, funny, touching memoir, Tan France tells his origin story for the first time. With his trademark wit, humor, and radical compassion, Tan reveals what it was like to grow up gay in a traditional South Asian family, as one of the few people of color in South Yorkshire, England. He illuminates his winding journey of coming of age, finding his voice (and style!), and marrying the love of his life—a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City. From one of the stars of Netflix’s runaway hit show Queer Eye, Naturally Tan is so much more than fashion dos and don’ts—though of course Tan can’t resist steering everyone away from bootcut jeans! Full of candid observations about U.S. and U.K. cultural differences, what he sees when you slide into his DMs, celebrity encounters, and the behind-the-scenes realities of “reality TV,” Naturally Tan gives us Tan’s unique perspective on the happiness to be found in being yourself. In Tan's own words, “The book is meant to spread joy, personal acceptance, and most of all understanding. Each of us is living our own private journey, and the more we know about each other, the healthier and happier the world will be.”

Book Short Summary:

Written in Johnny Saldaña′s elegant and accessible style, Thinking Qualitatively: Methods of Mind boldly pursues the challenge of teaching students not just how to collect and analyze data, but how to actively think about them. Each chapter presents one "method of mind" (thinking analytically, realistically, symbolically, ethically, multidisciplinarily, artistically, summarily, interpretively, and narratively), together with applications, a vignette or story related to the thinking modality, points to remember, and exercises. Designed to help researchers "rise above the data," the book explores how qualitative research designs, data collection, data analyses, and write-ups can be enriched through over 60 different lenses, filters, and angles on social life. Venturing into more evocative and multidimensional ways to examine the complex patterns of daily living, the book reveals how the researcher′s mind thinks heuristically to transcend the descriptive and develop "highdeep" insights about the human condition.

Book Short Summary:

Style of dress has always been a way for Americans to signify their politics, but perhaps never so overtly as in the 1960s and 1970s. Whether participating in presidential campaigns or Vietnam protests, hair and dress provided a powerful cultural tool for social activists to display their politics to the world and became both the cause and a symbol of the rift in American culture. Some Americans saw stylistic freedom as part of their larger political protests, integral to the ideals of self-expression, sexual freedom, and equal rights for women and minorities. Others saw changes in style as the erosion of tradition and a threat to the established social and gender norms at the heart of family and nation. Through the lens of fashion and style, Dressing for the Culture Wars guides us through the competing political and social movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Although long hair on men, pants and miniskirts on women, and other hippie styles of self-fashioning could indeed be controversial, Betty Luther Hillman illustrates how self-presentation influenced the culture and politics of the era and carried connotations similarly linked to the broader political challenges of the time. Luther Hillman’s new line of inquiry demonstrates how fashion was both a reaction to and was influenced by the political climate and its implications for changing norms of gender, race, and sexuality.

Book Short Summary:

Since the dawn of western fashion in the Middle Ages, women's dress has never stopped evolving, yet menswear has seen far fewer style revolutions. At the centre of the male wardrobe is the suit: relatively unchanged since the 17th century, its cut and cloth suggest athleticism, seriousness, sexuality and strength – qualities which contrasted with the perceived superficiality and frivolity of female dress, and eventually led to the adoption of the suit into the female wardrobe where it remains to this day. In Sex and Suits brilliant essayist and art critic Anne Hollander charts the development of men's and women's fashion from their divergence in the medieval period to their convergence through to the late 20th century. Challenging the idea that the suit's success is merely down to its practicality, this trailblazing book argues that men have been fashion's true style-setters and that as women's fashion has taken on elements of men's style through tailoring, so men have reclaimed the embellishment and colour of past eras. First published in 1994 to great acclaim, this classic text is as fresh and provocative as ever and remains a must-read for students, scholars and anyone fascinated by the history of fashion and gender.

Book Short Summary:

From cultural studies, sociology, media studies, gender studies and elsewhere there have been a spate of books recently which have attempted to characterize the state of modernity. Many of these have also argued that what is required is an ethnographic work to determine how far these supposed trends actually apply to a given population. This book explicitly accepts this challenge and, in so doing, demonstrates the potential of modern anthropology studies. It starts by summarizing some debates on modernity and then argues that the Caribbean island of Trinidad is particularly apt for such a study given the origins of its population in slavery and indentured labour, both forms of extreme social rupture. The particular focus of this book is on mass consumption and the way goods and imported images such as soap opera have been used to express and develop a number of key contradictions of modernity. It will be of interest to anthropologists looking for a new potential for the discipline, as well as students in other fields who will be interested in the new contribution of anthropology to their debates.

Book Short Summary:

An “incandescent….redefining biography of a major poet whose reputation continues to ascend” (Booklist, starred review)—Wallace Stevens, perhaps the most important American poet of the twentieth century. Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) lived a richly imaginative life that he expressed in his poems. “A biography that is both deliciously readable and profoundly knowledgeable” (Library Journal, starred review), The Whole Harmonium presents Stevens within the living context of his times and as the creator of a poetry that continues to shape how we understand and define ourselves. A lawyer who rose to become an insurance-company vice president, Stevens composed brilliant poems on long walks to work and at other stolen moments. He endured an increasingly unhappy marriage, and yet he had his Dionysian side, reveling in long fishing (and drinking) trips to the sun-drenched tropics of Key West. He was at once both the Connecticut businessman and the hidalgo lover of all things Latin. His first book of poems, Harmonium, published when he was forty-four, drew on his profound understanding of Modernism to create a distinctive and inimitable American idiom. Over time he became acquainted with peers such as Robert Frost and William Carlos Williams, but his personal style remained unique. The complexity of Stevens’s poetry rests on emotional, philosophical, and linguistic tensions that thread their way intricately through his poems, both early and late. And while he can be challenging to understand, Stevens has proven time and again to be one of the most richly rewarding poets to read. Biographer and poet Paul Mariani’s The Whole Harmonium “is an excellent, superb, thrilling story of a mind….unpacking poems in language that is nearly as eloquent as the poet’s, and as clear as faithfulness allows” (The New Yorker).

Book Short Summary:

The Everlasting Gospels are the Holy Words spoken directly from God's mouth. The voice of The Heavenly Father transcends from His High throne to all mankind to adhere to. The Word, which created the world in the beginning, is now to recreate, reconstruct, and reform the entire world and humanity according to The Father's Will as it is done in heaven. The kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ and this Working Document is the only Constitution of the New World. The contents of this Everlasting Gospel is a testimony to the fulfilment of the promise of Our Lord Jesus Christ, that the Comforter will come to teach all things, lead people to the accurate knowledge of the truth and inform of things to come (John 16: 7-14), which has in truth materialised. The Will of Our Heavenly Father is done on earth as it is done in heaven. John 16: 7-14 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” His Coming was revealed to many prophets, both past, and present. Astrologers and scientists are aware of His Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience. Some try to conceal or ignore the truth, while others are confused, disturbed, and without the capacity to comprehend. The purpose of this compilation is to reveal the Truth for the salvation of the entire world. The Holy Spirit is personified and His Everlasting Gospels, in this Divine Document, expatiates and shines greater light on many issues affecting our lives and environments physically, socially, and spiritually. The gospels provide answers to questions that have remained unanswered, challenge misconceived doctrines, corrects entrenched wrong believes, and reframes questions that were, hitherto, wrongly asked. The maxim which says that “a tree is known by its fruit' is germane to the Everlasting Gospel as the unparalleled wisdom in its contents affirm that God, the Quickening Spirit, is on earth directing all the affairs in the world, setting the captives free, and fulfilling His promises. God has answered the plea in the Lord's Prayer as nominated in the Holy Bible, i.e. " Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven". That Kingdom has come. It is the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, a Kingdom in reality and in practice with God Himself as the foundation and Head of the Monarchy. The government is theocratic and Love is the law. The Holy Spirit is warning everyone about the need to turn a new leaf and begin to love one another and all creation of God to escape the impending predicaments and calamities already befalling the world, and, especially, the final judgement of God. The Everlasting Gospel Volume 1 is a collection of some of the numerous Gospels and Bible Lectures delivered daily, and sometimes twice daily every day of the year, by the Holy Spirit personified in Leader Olumba Olumba Obu over a period spanning over forty years. The Gospels are delivered in the Efik dialect and interpreted into other languages, including English, by human interpreters. Interpreting Efik to English is a challenging task as Efik is a complex language with a lot of nuances and contexts. The priority of the interpreters is to, as much as possible, provide the English equivalents of the gospels being delivered and not try to contextualize or second guess the meaning.

Book Short Summary:

Face it--women fall into a beauty rut at a certain age, when their tried-and-true makeup techniques just aren't working anymore. That's when you know it's time for a Makeup Wakeup! Beauty experts Lois Joy Johnson and Sandy Linter say it's time to learn what will work for women 40+ now. The Makeup Wakeup shares Lois and Sandy's inside information on what stars do; how to face demons like brow abuse and sun damage; even a fail-proof shopping guide. Though focused on the simplicity of makeup, the authors also consulted with three prominent doctors to address the concerns of women who opt for cosmetic procedures. Lois and Sandy say: "Women 40+ tell us they feel invisible in a world of beauty that is really marketing to younger women. We felt a need to write a beauty guide we'd read ourselves, one that solved the kinds of issues women face every day."

Book Short Summary:

Me Caribou Is On Fire is a great read! One can almost taste the camp grub he describes, whether prepared for or by him, smell the scents of the hunting camps and cabins and feel the bitter cold of the 1992 fall hunt or the Delta sheep hunt snowstorm. The descriptions of his many hunting experiences make the reader feel like they were there with him in the wild or on a flight to the next adventure. I can't wait for the sequel! Mike Fleagle, Former Chairman - Alaska Board of Game Pete Buist is undoubtedly the epitome of the outdoorsman in the truest meaning of the term. Trapper, hunter, master guide, firefighter are just some of his accomplishments; in a nutshell, a lifetime of adventure and excitement lived in the manner that makes me envious and at the same time filled with admiration. While guiding Pete in South Africa, it did cross my mind that I would have relished doing a hunt with our roles reversed and basking in the experience of a life well-lived. Pete Tumkulu "Buist has applied his knowledge, experience, and eloquence to add the title of Author to his other accomplishments and has produced a well-written, enjoyable read capable of transporting the reader to those wild places. John" Madala" Barnes Professional Hunter - South Africa The real "trophies" of a life spent outdoors are the stories. Indeed, storytelling is a foundational skill of the seasoned hunter, and Pete's "seasoning" reaches into a stratosphere most of us will never see. I became friends with Pete in 2008, and after only a couple of days of immersing myself in his storytelling prowess, I said, "Pete, you really need to write a book." And here it is. Pete's recall, precise detail, wit, and humor are extraordinary as he takes you along on countless adventures. These entertaining stories are definitely worth the price of admission.
