My City Speaks

A young girl’s exploration of the city she loves. A young girl and her father spend a day in the city, her city, traveling to the places they go together. As they do, the girl, who is visually impaired, describes what she senses in delightfully precise, poetic detail. Her city, she says, “pitters and patters, and drips and drains.” It’s both “smelly” and “sweet.” Her city also speaks, as it “dings and dongs and rattles and roars.” And sometimes, maybe even some of the best times, it just listens. A celebration of all there is to appreciate in our surroundings — just by paying attention!

The City Speaks

This book studies the significance and representation of the ‘city’ in the writings of Indian poets, graphic novelists, and dramatists. It demonstrates how cities give birth to social images, perspectives, and complexities, and explores the ways in which cities and the characters in Indian literature coexist to form a larger literary framework of interpretations. Drawing on the theoretical concepts of Western urban thinkers such as Henri Lefebvre, Georg Simmel, Walter Benjamin, Edward Soja, David Harvey, and Diane Levy, as well as South Asian thinkers such as Ashis Nandy, Arjun Appadurai, Vinay Lal, and Ravi Sundaram, the book projects against a seemingly monolithic and homogenous Western qualification of urban literatures and offers a truly unique and contentious presentation of Indian literature. Unfolding the urban-literary landscape of India, the volume lays the groundwork for an urban studies approach to Indian literature. It will be of great interest to scholars and students of literature, especially Indian writing in English, urban studies, and South Asian studies.

   Thus Speaks Ishtar of Arbela

Thus Speaks Ishtar is a collection of essays about prophets and prophecy in the ancient Near East during the “Neo-Assyrian Period.” This was the time when some of Israel’s greatest prophets emerged, and we also have from the same general period a number of prophetic texts found on the site of the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh. The book examines the basic idea of prophecy and how this is shaped by the way we study the subject, and it then presents a number of fresh insights on a range of prophetic topics. These include the relationship between Israelite and other forms of prophecy in Assyria and Egypt and the relationship between what prophets said and the written forms in which their words were passed on. Other topics of contemporary interest include what these prophetic texts have to say about the environment, the place of intercession in Israelite and Assyrian religion, and whether the message of the trailblazing Israelite prophets of the eighth century was basically about judgment and community ruin or about hope and community well-being.

GOD Speaks to His Edifice

Anthony, My son, has served with honour unto completion of the vision as declared to him over many hours of days stretching into years. As I, The Lord, have spoken, so Anthony has recorded accurately and in fullness all which I have spoken to his spirit’s ears. This book brings forth the necessary knowledge destined for man in preparation for The Kingdom of God on The Earth. For man should not be nonplussed by the activities of God, by the plans of God, by His keeping of His promises. I, The Lord, say again, the day soon dawns which will awaken man to meet with My presence, to meet with his destiny, to meet with a change of lifestyle and of knowledge. For herein is the foundation of My kingdom’s rule, of the behaviour expected from its citizens, of the reigning of The King with love supporting His hand on the tap of mercy. For herein are the edicts leading up to and for the morality of eternity, the indicators of the will of God, the banishers of evil, the upholders of righteousness throughout the lands of God. For herein are the courts of Heaven revealed prior to their coming to The Earth. For herein are the indicators for the passing of Faith with Grace accompanying man: as brought by the sacrifice upon the cross for man. For herein are the indicators for the coming of Knowledge with Mercy accompanying God: as brought by His unsealing of the doorway to eternity for man.

Until the Lion Speaks

"The tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter until the lion speaks" is an African proverb. The premise of the proverb explains how people will glorify a story or create a narrative about someone that isn't necessarily accurate or even make themselves look good. This is done only to create an attitude within people toward other people that they want to paint a negative point of view of.This book was written to complicate the narrative of the story that sensationalized the confrontation of Ben Wilson and Billy Moore. Billy not only addressed just the confrontation on that unfortunate day but also set out to outline his pedigree, his upbringing, his experience in prison, and the work he had been doing since his release.Until the Lion Speaks tells of the social landscape that defined Chicago in the eighties. Anyone who reads this book from Chicago growing up at that time will feel Chicago in every line. In fact, Billy Moore has made the city of Chicago as a separate character in Until the Lion Speaks! This is a comeback story, a story of redemption and reconciliation. Hopefully, the lessons that can be learned from Until the Lion Speaks will help young men develop the emotional skills to successfully get past those moments. When confronted with unfortunate circumstances, the lessons in this book can help them make better decisions so they can walk away to hopefully live their best lives!

The Donkey Speaks    AGAIN

How we understand and interpret prophecy ultimately determines how we interpret the rest of the Bible—even how we understand God. Unfortunately, all the currently accepted outlines of how the end-times are portrayed in the Bible contain contradictions. The two major groups—Amillennialism (who reject the theory that Jesus Christ will have a literal, thousand-year-long, physical reign on the earth) and Premillennialism (who believe Jesus Christ will literally and physically return to the earth after taking the Christian believers up to heaven)—each have strong arguments. While the Premillennial view appears to have the most validity, it also has many contradictions mainly rooted in the assumption of a seven-year yet future tribulation before the second coming. The Donkey Speaks Again will help the reader finally understand Bible prophecies and the way the Bible lays them out for us. Key Bible words and phrases are interpreted to allow the reader to overlap singular events depicted within the two separate visions of end-times events (given to Jews in the Old Testament and the Christians in the New Testament) confidently as occurring together on the prophecy timeline. When faced with these truths, the reader will be forced to change the way they understand God, the Bible, and definitely some long-held, but never questioned beliefs.

Who Speaks for the Negro

First published in 1965, this is a unique text in the history of the American Civil Rights Movement. Robert Penn Warren interviewed a wide range of African American leaders, activists, and artists across the country, among them Martin Luther King, Malcom X, and James Baldwin. Sections from the transcripts of these interviews are combined with the author’s reflections on the interviewees and the Civil Rights Movement as a whole to create a powerful oral history of this all-important struggle. A new introduction by David W. Blight places Warren’s book in historical perspective. " In this new edition introduced by the eminent historian David Blight, Who Speaks for the Negro? reveals a provocative admixture of history's variance. Warren's book is a burden of the past from which we cannot escape. It summons us to awaken a more vital national heartbeat of reparations for an American dilemma."—Houston Baker, Vanderbilt University

The Vondish Ambassador

... though it occurred to Emmis that appearances could be very deceptive in the case of wizards — then called, "I am Kaligir of the New Quarter in Ethshar of the Rocks, and Ithinia speaks for me and the wizards of my city, as well.

The Vondish Ambassador

Once, not so long ago, A warlock named Vond built an empire in the southern part of the Small Kingdoms. Vond is gone, but his empire survives under the rule of a seven-person Imperial Council and a young regent named Sterren. The Empire of Vond was hardly trouble-free after Vond's departure. Its neighbors are understandably wary of further expansion, there are questions about how Vond's magic became so potent, and so on. Most of the World, though, doesn't care -- Vond is off there in the southeastern corner of the World, far away from anywhere important. But one day a dockworker named Emmis watches a Vondish ship arrive in Ethshar of the Spices and finds himself hired as native guide and aide to someone who claims to be Vond's ambassador plenipotentiary to the overlords of the Hegemony of the Three Ethshars. But who is the Vondish ambassador, really, and what is his true business in Ethshar? And who has followed him to the city?
