The Generation of Postmemory

Can we remember other people's memories? The Generation of Postmemory argues we can: that memories of traumatic events live on to mark the lives of those who were not there to experience them. Children of survivors and their contemporaries inherit catastrophic histories not through direct recollection but through haunting postmemories multiply mediated images, objects, stories, behaviors, and affects passed down within the family and the culture at large. In these new and revised critical readings of the literary and visual legacies of the Holocaust and other, related sites of memory, Marianne Hirsch builds on her influential concept of postmemory. The book's chapters, two of which were written collaboratively with the historian Leo Spitzer, engage the work of postgeneration artists and writers such as Art Spiegelman, W.G. Sebald, Eva Hoffman, Tatana Kellner, Muriel Hasbun, Anne Karpff, Lily Brett, Lorie Novak, David Levinthal, Nancy Spero and Susan Meiselas. Grappling with the ethics of empathy and identification, these artists attempt to forge a creative postmemorial aesthetic that reanimates the past without appropriating it. In her analyses of their fractured texts, Hirsch locates the roots of the familial and affiliative practices of postmemory in feminism and other movements for social change. Using feminist critical strategies to connect past and present, words and images, and memory and gender, she brings the entangled strands of disparate traumatic histories into more intimate contact. With more than fifty illustrations, her text enables a multifaceted encounter with foundational and cutting edge theories in memory, trauma, gender, and visual culture, eliciting a new understanding of history and our place in it.

Bridging the Generation Gap

If you are a manager, human resources professional or business owner, you are faced with these types of issues every day. But why? Because currently, there are five generations in the workplace: Radio Babies (born during 1930-1945); Baby Boomers (1946-1964); Generation X (1965-1976); Generation Y (1977-1991); even some Millennials (1991 and later). Each of them has a different perspective, based on their upbringing and daily lives. The key to making encounters between the generations successful is learning to understand the point of view of each generation and respect their differences. The individuals and organizations that do this will be the ones to succeed. This book will show you how. Authors Gravett and Throckmorton take a dynamic approach to the situation by writing in two distinct voices — as a Baby Boomer and a Gen Xer — using a "point-counterpoint" approach to identify differences and similarities across generations. They share hands-on experiences, real-life cases, recommended solutions and ground-breaking research on how members of any generation can better relate to minimize conflict, miscommunication and wasted energy. You will learn what each generation thinks of the others and how each wishes the others viewed it. Bridging the Generation Gap is filled with strategies and solutions you can implement immediately to help build your own bridge between the generations.

The Jericho Wall

This is a story of the Igbo Diaspora in America. It is a story of the cultural conflicts that often arise when an Igbo youth falls in love with, and wants to marry, a non-Igbo. Okocha Anigbo, one of the two sons of Chief Nat and Lolo Ekemma Anigbo, meets and falls in love with an American girl, Tatiana Karefa, the daughter of Edna and Philip Karefa, a jovial and unapologetic Baptist. But Chief Anigbo, a well-respected Igbo community leader and vocal opponent of cross-cultural marriages, is bitterly and implacably opposed to his sons plan to marry the American girl. Entreaties from his son, and even from one of the respected elders of the Igbo community, Chikezie Odogwu, fail to persuade him to change his position. For his part, Okocha sees the traditional and cultural underpinnings relating to the institution of marriage among the Igbo as a veritable Wall of Jericho that needs to be breached, to let the Igbo youth freely marry from outside the Igbo clan. In the teeth of Chief Anigbos opposition, but with the blessing of Philip Karefa, Okocha and Tatiana marry. The denouement comes with the birth of their child.

Literature from the  Axis of Evil

Subject of a full-length segment on Morning Edition when it first appeared in hardcover, Literature from the “Axis of Evil” quickly went to the top of the Amazon bestseller list. Its publication was celebrated by authors including Azar Nafisi and Alice Walker, and the Bloomsbury Review named it a “book of the year.” In thirty-five works of fiction and poetry, writers from countries Americans have not been allowed to hear from—until the Treasury Department revised its regulations recently—offer an invaluable window on daily life in “enemy nations” and humanize the individuals living there. The book includes works from Syria, Lybia, the Sudan, Cuba, as well as from Iran, Iraq, and North Korea. As editor Alane Mason writes in the introduction, “Not knowing what the rest of the world is thinking and writing is both dangerous and boring.”

family. Perhaps I can still make us happen.' 'No, my darling. Don't do that.

Great North Road

Great North Road is a standalone science fiction adventure from Peter F. Hamilton, the author of The Night's Dawn trilogy. When attending a Newcastle murder scene, Detective Sidney Hurst finds a dead North family clone. Yet none have been reported missing. And in 2122, twenty years ago, a North clone billionaire was horrifically murdered in the same manner on the tropical planet of St Libra. So, if the murderer is still at large, was Angela Tramelo wrongly convicted? She never wavered under interrogation, claiming she alone survived an alien attack. Investigating this potential alien threat now becomes the Human Defence Agency's top priority. St Libran bio-fuel is the lifeblood of Earth's economy and must be secured. A vast expedition is mounted via the Newcastle gateway, and experts are dispatched to the planet – with Angela Tramelo, grudgingly released from prison. But the expedition is cut off deep within St Libra's rainforests, and the murders begin. Angela insists it's the alien, but her new colleagues aren't sure. Did she see an alien, or does she have other reasons for being on St Libra? Praise for Peter F Hamilton: 'The most powerful imagination in science fiction' Ken Follett 'Novels that combine fantastic speculation with incredible detailed imagining of the lives we will lead' Guardian 'This is thrilling stuff; compulsively readable and abundantly full of ideas' The Times 'Reaches another level of excellence . . . Brilliant' Locus

"One man with courage makes a majority." - Andrew Jackson Whether you are about to begin a new job, undergo surgery, or ask your boss for a raise, possessing courage will help you face these battles. A Call for Courage contains more than 175 quotes from the presidents of the United States on the subject of courage. "America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to the job at hand." - Harry Truman "A strong nation, like a strong person, can afford to be gentle, firm, thoughtful, and restrained. It can afford to extend a helping hand to others. It's a weak nation, like a weak person, that must behave with bluster and boasting and rashness and other signs of insecurity." - Jimmy Carter A Call for Courage is a wonderful gift for anyone facing a challenge - be it fear of war or simply moving away from home.

The Letters of T  S  Eliot Volume 2  1923 1925

Volume Two covers the early years of his editorship of The Criterion (the periodical that Eliot launched with Lady Rothermere's backing in 1922), publication of The Hollow Men and the course of Eliot's thinking about poetry and poetics after The Waste Land. The correspondence charts Eliot's intellectual journey towards conversion to the Anglican faith in 1927, as well as his transformation from banker to publisher, ending with his appointment as a director of the new publishing house of Faber & Gwyer, in late 1925, and the appearance of Poems 1909-1925, Eliot's first publication with the house with which he would be associated for the rest of his life. It was partly because of Eliot's profoundly influential work as cultural commentator and editor that the correspondence is so prolific and so various, and Volume Two of the Letters fully demonstrates the emerging continuities between poet, essayist, editor and letter-writer.

Visited by Cissy in prison, Dickey is relieved when his innocence is finally acknowledged. But now only time will tell whether their relationship will lastor whether he will ever be able to shake his obsession with the nurse he left behind.

The New Generation of Leadership

A wake up call for young people While there are millions of graduates leaving colleges and universities every year, major statistics show that more than 53 percent of these graduates are either unemployed or underemployed.1 Did you know that the majority of individuals who prosper, excel, and move forward faster in society today are young people who have learned to always increase their value and stand out from the crowd? Have you considered and capitalized on what makes you stand out from the eighty-two million young people in the world today? THE NEW GENERATION OF LEADERSHIP is a must-read for those young people, who want to make the most of their lives, stand out and leapfrog ahead of others in our current world full of unprecedented opportunities and keen global competition. "Where there is no Leadership, the People fall... Proverbs 11:14. Everything rise and fall with leadership. I believe this book can bring out the leader in you. Academic qualification can secure you a job but leadership quality is what set you apart from your peers. Well done David, Loges and Sarah for writing this wonderful book. Let the leaders of tomorrow step forward!"--David Lee, CFP, CA, Independent Financial Advisor "There are many books on leadership out there, but The New Generation of Leadership indeed stands out. Every word in it serves a purpose. David's passion for leadership is palpable all through this well-written book. It doesn't simply dish out theory, but gives practical steps to take if one is to become a leader of influence. The authors sought to convince their readers that leading effectively is indeed possible, and they did! I enjoyed reading this book and will make sure every leader-both young and old-gets the information contained in this great work."--Ike Amadi, Author of Do Something! "An average book gives you things to ponder about. A good book inspires you to act out on those things. A great book challenges you to get out of your seat and live your life from what you have read. This is a great book!" --Andrew Lau, Founder of Leaderonomics Campus

Star Trek  The Next Generation  Triangle  Imzadi II

Even in the 24th century, three is definitely a crowd. Imzadi: to the people of the planet Betazed, including Counselor Deanna Troi of the Starship Enterprise™, it means "beloved" and denotes a special closeness that can never be truly broken. Or can it? In his acclaimed earlier novel, Imzadi, bestselling author Peter David explored the special bond between Deanna Troi and Commander William T. Riker. It revealed new facets of their long and intimate relationship and put that bond to its ultimate test in a powerful and unforgettable story that remains one of the most popular Star Trek® adventures ever published. Imzadi was a New York Times bestseller in both hardcover and paperback. Now David examines the heart of Deanna Troi from an altogether different perspective, as he reveals for the first time the full story of Troi's troubled romance with Lieutenant Commander Worf. At first glance, they cannot be more different. She is an empath, gentle and acutely sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. He is a fierce Klingon warrior, dedicated to a harsh and warlike code of honor. Brought together, however, by a common need to care for Alexander, Worf's troubled, motherless son, they discover hidden reserves of courage and compassion within each other. Soon mutual respect leads to much stronger emotions as they embark on an unexpected courtship, much to the surprise and discomfort of William Riker. But does Worf's future truly lie with Deanna...or on a distant outpost called Deep Space 9™? And whom indeed shall Troi ultimately call "imzadi"? Imzadi II is a compelling story, an untold chapter in the history of the Starship Enterprise™.
