This new interdisciplinary collection of writing explores the achievements of the Rossettis in the context of the Victorian era and in the light of modern cultural and literary criticism. 'Outsiders Looking In' considers the position that the Anglo-Italian Rossettis occupied in the cultural melee of mid-Victorian London, a status that was both central and fringe owing to their dual nationality.

Looking In: Being an Expat Tween discusses the challenges faced by expatriate tweens ages 9 to 12 years old. It is designed as a self-help book. Each chapter discusses and expands on a topic, and provides exercises to help the tween gain a better understanding of who he is and how to deal with issues in a peaceful and empowering manner. At the back of the book is a chapter titled "Deepen Your Knowledge," which contains extra details for some of the topics discussed in various chapters. The chapter titled "How To ..." offers quick tips on dealing with stress, parents, and projects. Born in Uganda, first-time author Sainoor Premji lives in Canada. She taught for many years and now works in the alternate health care field. "When I was teaching in Tokyo, we found it very difficult to find self-help books for young adults between the ages of 9 to 12. Most books were either too young or geared toward teenagers. This got me thinking about how this age group, especially the expat children, could use a self-help book that would meet their needs." Publisher's website: http: //sbpra.com/SainoorPremji

Using recent scholarship in ethnography and popular culture, Miller throws light on both what these series present and what is missing, how various long-standing issues are raised and framed differently over time, and what new issues appear. She looks at narrative arc, characterization, dialogue, and theme as well as how inflections of familiar genres like family adventure, soap opera, situation comedy, and legal drama shape both the series and viewers' expectations. Miller discusses Radisson, Forest Rangers and other children's series in the 1960s and early 1970s, as well as Beachcombers, Spirit Bay, The Rez, and North of 60 - series whose complex characters created rewarding relationships while dealing with issues ranging from addiction to unemployment to the aftermath of the residential school system.

This is the autobiography of a little boy of mixed racial background. He was born in 1938, in rural Georgia, the child of sharecroppers in abject poverty .The story takes the reader inside the thoughts of this boy and allows them to view his feelings and actions as he becomes a man. The little boy experiences the American process of character genocide as practiced by benevolent adults. He refuses to accept the boundaries, the subhuman treatment and his stated inferiority in a racist society .His inner strength and genetics enable him to obtain many of his set goals. The boy finds that all things come at a price and he comes to a conclusion. Although he is; he views himself not as a Caucasian, not as a Native American or an African American but as a fortunate and gifted human being. He breaks 15,000 years of Native American tradition and shares his experiences with the reader. "Just because the white man says it. That don't make it so. Don't explain yourself to the whites because they will never understand you anyway." Y ou come to feel and understand the little boy's curiosity about adult behavior and his determination to persevere and survive at a high personal cost as the rite of passage takes him through his childhood. He learns the lessons of life that good as well as bad people come in all colors. All people must be judged as individuals and on personal merit. The reader becomes aware of the acuteness ofhis pain and the unfairness of life as the boy reaches for the American dream.

"One of the country's most distinguished intellectuals [and] one of its most provocative." -The New York Times Bookish and retiring, Garry Wills has been an outsider in the academy, in journalism, even in his church. Yet these qualities have, paradoxically, prompted people to share intimate insights with him- perhaps because he is not a rival, a competitor, or a threat. Sometimes this made him the prey of con men like conspiratorialist Mark Lane or civil rights leader James Bevel. At other times it led to close friendship with such people as William F. Buckley, Jr., or singer Beverly Sills. The result is the most personal book Wills has ever written. With his dazzling style and journalist's eye for detail, Wills brings history to life, whether it's the civil rights movement; the protests against the Vietnam War; the presidential campaigns of Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton; or the set of Oliver Stone's Nixon. Illuminating and provocative, Outside Looking In is a compelling chronicle of an original thinker at work in remarkable times.

Have you ever bared your soul? Have you ever tried to be so honest it hurts? Then Outside Looking In will strike a chord. As the reader on the outside, looking in, you are taken on a very personal and painful journey through the eyes of the author; Aud Clark, as a seven-year-old child helpless at the hands of a tyrannical father, is systematically abused. “They say when you experience a traumatic experience your mind blocks it out for your protection and to a degree that’s true, but it didn’t quite block it out enough for me when one afternoon aged just seven that protection theory was put to the test.” Forced to keep it a secret, she learns to suppress her emotions until they spill over into her day-to-day life, resulting in anger and outbursts against those she loves most. She loses her daughter and the man that she loved. “At that point in my life I believed I was nothing more than a liability to those I loved. I had got used to bottling everything up. It was easier than alarming people.” She pushes away anyone who tries to get close. Her whirligig of emotions results in many a love lost. Despite the trauma, a career in entertainment and a difficult friendship with a celebrity follows. That friendship takes many twists and turns, but none more so than when she discovers he is dying, which takes her so very close to the edge of death. Outside Looking In is a true and harrowing autobiography that will resonate predominantly with women who have suffered personal traumas in their life or those who have loved and lost. “I constantly try to forget my past. I don’t want to be a victim. I am a survivor like many, many others.”

The autobiography of a struggling musician, working over 30 years gigging on the road. Life has its price, and one way or another; we will all have to pay for it. On invitation, I went to see a famous clairvoyant called, 'Madame Faye'. Her prediction of the assassination of president J.F. Kennedy brought her worldwide recognition. I was a total sceptic and we had never met before. In retrospect, everything she told me about my past was true, and what is stunning beyond belief, is the fact that all the major events in this book, were predicted in detail by 'Madame Faye' to me, at her house in the summer of 1966. The last thing she said to me was, 'you will be successful with your music, but only after a long hazardous journey, and you'll have to sacrifice everything for it. For most musicians, it's usually a case of playing for fun. Some play professionally, and others make the 'Big time'. I take the view, that a real musician is rarer still. He doesn't play to survive - HE SURVIVES TO PLAY. My only credentials for having this point of view are some thirty years playing on the pub and club scene and still gigging strong.

Stephen Hawking wrote a book “a Brief History of Time”, and in a sense, this is what this book is all about, a brief history or slice out of the Afrikaner peoples existence in Southern Africa. A glimpse of their achievements, their failures and disappointments, not through the eyes of an historian but through entering into their lives, their homes, experiencing their pain, laughing at their idiosyncrasies, walking next to them in their everyday experiences at home, at work, at war and at play. After some deliberation it was decided that the best way to achieve this goal would be by using the medium of short stories, and to concentrate on the time period 1930 to 2000. It is felt that future historians will recognize this period as the most dramatic and signifi cant in the rise and fall of the Afrikaner nation as well as the birth of the so called rainbow nation.
