These poems represent the musings of a man: an intelligent man, a world traveler, a man in his fifties going slightly mad from booze and grief and a perception of a world in a headlong rush to a future he does not understand and has no wish to. We know him only as "Tweed." But we're never sure whether he is speaking of Tweed himself, or Tweed as alter ego, and we see his world, perhaps our world, through his eyes. We wander with him in the past, sometimes in the present, and very rarely in the future. For him, there is no future, only the daily task of living it through, and this collection is a journey with him.

Another View is a study of revelation in which a fictional setting is used to explore revealed religion and its background. The fictional setting provides a narrative structure to what is otherwise a journey from the infinite past to the current situation as regards revelation in history and in philosophical/theological conceptual development. This book is not an exercise of exegesis but a source material is never treated lightly. Only the fictional setting has a patina of entertainment and some grounding in the world of solids. To wit, there are no footnotes scholarship is not intrusive, but it does build the book.

In Another View, there were only two men in Emma's life--her father, a remote artist in Cornwall who left her in boarding school and saw her every few years, and Christo, who had been her stepbrother for a few months, and now wanted to get to know her. But until Emma can understand what she means to them, there will never be room for love. When you read a novel by Rosamunde Pilcher you enter a special world where emotions sing from the heart. A world that lovingly captures the ties that bind us to one another-the joys and sorrows, heartbreaks and misunderstandings, and glad, perfect moments when we are in true harmony. A world filled with evocative, engrossing, and above all, enjoyable portraits of people's lives and loves, tenderly laid open for us...

Mr. Shen was born in China and has lived and taught in the United States for 17 years. Mr. Shen has published three books in China. He is also a contributing writer for many Chinese newspapers and magazines around the world. This book is an account of author's own experience teaching in American schools and observations as a teacher and a parent. The cause of the failure of American education is not the schools. The adult-oriented society and the anti-eductaion culture surrounding the schools have been destroying the American education and American children. If they really want to reform their education, Americans must understand that American way that they know is not the only way in the world. American way that has been hurting American education is certainly not the right way. America needs some fresh eyes and views from the different perspectives. That is what this book to offer.

"Yes, there is a different view of Marilyn." February 16, 2004 marks the 50th anniversary of our tour of Korea. For one week my musical abilities (uninterupted by military service) and her meteoric rising star power combined in front of more than one hundred thousand service persons. The stuff we shared, and how we got there, and moved onward, are the subjects of this memoir.

Life is Beautiful, But Not for Jews

Another View of the Film by Benigni

With sharp, uncompromising logic and eye-opening insight, Niv analyzes the film and its script scene-by-scene to show why Life is Beautiful is very far from being the innocent, charming, and heartwarming film it appears to be. The author argues that the film not only lends support to the central arguments of Holocaust deniers, but is actually a quasi-theological, Christian parable which seeks to justify the extermination of Jews in the 20th century as divine punishment for the sin of the crucifixion of Jesus two thousand years ago.

The book is intended to directly confront the standard attacks made against Stalin: forced collectivization, overbearing bureaucracy, extermination of the Old Bolshevik guard, the Great Purge, forced industrialization, collusion between Stalin and Hitler, his incompetency during World War II, etc. We have endeavored to deconstruct many `well-known truths’ about Stalin, those that are summarized — over and over — in a few lines in newspapers, history books and interviews, and which have more or less become part of our unconscious. Read the book,then you decide.

Living under a church pew can give you an interesting—and enlightened—view of Christianity – just as long as it doesn’t resemble what Amos calls, “church-ianity.” Amos is a mouse, but he doesn’t merely wander about, searching for communion crumbs. Amos is a philosopher, and he has plenty of time to consider the meaning of it all, especially since he also has plenty of opportunity hearing about the wisdom of life in Jesus.
